Do you need to install a handicapped bathroom to help a family member who is disabled? A bathroom that is accessible to those people who are disabled can improve the quality of life. There is also the added benefit that whenever a bathroom is upgraded or remodeled it provides a good return on investment.
There are measurements and dimensions that need to be addressed in handicap bathrooms.
