    Medicare covers a shower chair for medically necessary reasons. She has to get a prescription from the doctor and the medical equipment company will provide it. If and when she no longer needs that chair, it has to be returned to the medical supply company. I got one after surgery 3 years ago and still have it.

    They might, but you can buy a nice one on Amazon for about 28 dollars.
