Bathing And Meal Preparation


On average, approximately 370 people of all ages sustain injuries in the bathtub or shower every day in the United States. Approximately 20 percent of those injuries come from the elderly over 65 years of age. A recent study found that 9 percent of the elderly population considered bathing one of the most difficult tasks.
