Ultimate Guide to Tall Toilets for the Elderly (Plus 6 Cheaper and Easier Alternatives)

Tall toilets have seats that are 16″ to 20″ from the floor to help elderly people get off the toilet easier. Before buying a new toilet, know how much space you have, how tall you need it to be, what style of bowl you prefer, the flushing system needed, and what your price range is.
Some easier and cheaper options to replacing a toilet are using elevated toilet seats, installing a riser under your existing toilet, using a toilet safety frame, putting a commode chair over the toilet, or even using a powered toilet lift.
