    Shower curtain rods (Canada)

    So a while back we got a ceiling track to use a sling in the shower. Great, except it didn't occur to anyone how we'd be getting past the shower curtain rod to get me on the shower commode (not to mention that the track doesn't actually go over the toilet, and all these other issues that didn't...

    Portable shower for downstairs

    It is getting difficult to get upstairs. We have room downstairs for a bed, but there is only a half bath. Do you have any suggestions for a portable type of shower? Would want to take a good full shower/bath at least once a week. Should be able to wash up the other days.
