Do you suffer from aching joints, or do you have lower back pain? Is getting on and off the toilet a strenuous exercise for you? Does it take you agonizingly long to lower yourself onto the seat, so much so that you dread going to the bathroom? Don’t worry. There is something that can make your life so much easier. We call it a toilet seat for seniors. It prevents falls, and will help you to stay safely independent. 

Types of Toilet Seats for Elderly Individuals

There are two types of these toilet seat chairs for elderly people: There are risers and there are raised toilet seats for seniors. Both are popular; neither is better than the other. Most choose between the two depending on personal preferences. 

Raised toilet seats extend the height of the toilet by a few inches. The original toilet seat is not removed; one merely lifts it and leans it against the rear side of the toilet, and in its place, puts the raised toilet seat. A toilet seat riser works a bit differently: It is sandwiched between the toilet and the original seat, so that one is still sitting on the original toilet seat when using the bathroom. 

Tips for Choosing a Toilet Seat for Seniors

If you are interested in purchasing an elderly toilet seat riser or raised toilet, here are a few crucial tips to keep in mind that will help you to choose one that will keep your loved one as safe and comfortable as possible. 

Firstly, consider the toilet seat height. There is no standard toilet seat height for elderly people; every person is unique, and some are taller while others are short. Have the senior sit down on a chair, and measure the distance between the floor and the underside of his knee. Once you’ve done that, measure the length of the toilet from the floor to the top of the rim. Subtract this measurement from the previous one, and that’s the height you’ll want your toilet booster seat to be.

Next, check the brand. There are toilet seats for seniors from Briggs, Carex, Drive Medical, and many other reputable manufacturers. 

Other factors you’ll want to keep in mind are whether the toilet seat booster has arms, what the weight capacity is, and whether it is portable or permanent.
