Add handheld shower to tub faucet

I'd like to replace the tub faucet aerator (arrow in photo) with some kind of adapter onto which I can place a shower hose and handheld shower head. The faucet and spout are by Moen. How would I do this, and what are my options? Name:  bath faucet.jpg

The aerator has a very fine thread, we used to have an adaptor that hooked up to a faucet to a garden hose when we filled our water bed.

You will just need to find some type of hand-held shower head and find appropriate adaptor.

Thank you, Marq1. Can the spout itself be replaced with both a spout for the tub and a diverter for the shower in one unit? Do you know of any such replacement for the original tub spout?

I found a simple solution: Rinse Ace. I'm sure there are many other ways to do this, but this product works well for my uses.
