hotel showers

by /bio/rita-paul »

Love to travel,  but like many senior citizens, I find it impossible to use the shower in hotels when it is necessary to stand in the bathtub.  Either (a) I cannot get into the tub at all  because the sides are too high or (b) there no rubber mat to stand on that might forestall a tumble on the slippery bottom of the tub.  What  to do?

Rita, have you tried requesting a handicap accessible room? While I'm not (yet) a senior, I have stayed in a number of wheelchair friendly rooms that have walk-in showers with plentiful handles.
