After Hip Replacement: Home Safety

Becoming more aware of hazards in your home can help make your recovery safer. You might want to have furniture rearranged so it’s easier to get around. In the bathroom, aids like a shower hose and a raised toilet seat can help you stay safe. Don’t forget to watch out for hazards like wet floors, loose or worn rugs, or uneven surfaces.
