Is there any way to raise a toilet seat?


I have a round toilet seat with lid and it's too low. Any ideas to make it higher. I don't want to buy a new toilet. Appreciate any I'm out. Thanks.🤔

    Hi Norma. I'm Cindy. My Aunt had this same problem. She purchased a new toilet seat that had a 4 inch cushion built in. You can change out the seats with the same hardware. It was all she needed to be able to sit and get up from the toilet. I know Walgreen's sells medical equipment, but you may have to go online for a specific item. Good luck Norma.

    There are several types of risers to add to the toliet, with handle bars and without.... As a caregiver I recommend one with the scooped out back for easy wiping, and if its a senior the bars are great.... otherwise install a grab bar next to the toiliet. Be sure the screws are 2 1/2" to 3" long into studs.
