Hand Held Shower Install

Shower head is located too high on the tile wall for short person's access to the diverter valve. Any effective solutions to placing the diverter valve lower on the wall???

I don't know what diverter valve handles look like, but what about drilling a hole in one and attaching a plastic rod or a nylon string that goes low enough for the short person to use. The rod will let him pull it down and push it up, or the string will let him pull it down, and then it's the problem of the tall person what to when he showers.
A string might not require a hole, just a notch or maybe nothing at all, depending on the handle.
There are stores that sell just plastic, in all shapes.
A wooden dowell would work too, until it rots, which would take a long time if painted.

I'm no longer sure it would take a long time, even if painted. Maybe water would sit on it, not evaporate, and seem in through invisible cracks on the paint?? I don't konw. But iIt would take longer than if not painted!

Lower the valve. Simple once you have the wall open.
I'm not sure what you have, what you need, and how willing you are to tear into things. There are adjustable height shower oles too.

Would something for handicapped or ADA showers work?

Nothing specific. I thought it might be worth looking at some sites to see what suppliers of such things would have. I don't have the foggiest idea how people in wheel chairs tend to their daily hygiene. Possibly there would be a water controller that would be easier for them to reach.
