Slipping and falling while taking a shower is something that occurs much too often. And as we get older the more likely it could happen to any of us. Here is what I do to prevent slips in the shower. I wear a simple, inexpensive pair of rubber flip-flops. I had slipped in the shower a few years ago and dislocated my shoulder. My doctor recommended the flip flops as a measure to prevent slipping and falling. Although not a 100% effective means to avoid a mishap, it is certainly better than bare feet on slippery surfaces!
