We had our first
experience last weekend with a hotel
“handicapped” room. They gave us a
room with a roll in shower. The flat portion
of the shower floor was only 14” wide, then
a down ramp of a couple inches and a small
drain. There was another small drain
on the bathroom floor, which was necessary
because that is where much of the shower
water went. There was a bench in the
shower. My husband (recovering from a
stroke) is able to stand and shower, but his
balance is not good enough for the narrow
shower floor. The wet bathroom floor was “an
accident waiting to happen.” We
decided to forgo his shower that morning.
Also, the chair in the bedroom was too low;
he couldn’t rise from it without help.
Are all “handicapped” hotel rooms that way?
We need to know what to look forward to in
