Walk In Bathtubs for the Elderly
Do you have an aging parent or family member? Or a handicapped member of your family? Sometimes it can be hard when you have limited capabilities to do even the most prosaic tasks, such as bathing yourself. There is a great solution out there for those with physical limitations, called a Walk In Bathtub. These tubs are a wonderful way for your parent or handicapped family member to keep their independence and enjoy the rejuvenating effects of a warm bubble bath.
The great thing about Walk In Bathtubs is that you don’t need to go the hassle and expense of remodeling your bathroom to install them. They are a standard size bathtub, so they’ll fit in the same space your old bathtub occupied. What makes them so helpful for elderly or handicapped persons is that they have a door built into the side, so you can just walk in to the tub, rather than lifting your legs and hips to get in a bathtub. Walk In Bathtubs also have non slippery surfaces, so that the common slip and slide bathing accidents and injuries can be avoided.
Walk In Bathtubs come in different sizes and colors, so you can match the décor in your bathroom just as you would with any custom bathtub. And with their unique water seal door, all your loved one needs to do is walk in as they would a shower and fill the tub. There are great Walk In Bathtub models that have Thermostatic Valve controls, so you can control the temperature of the water precisely, and many models are over three feet tall, allowing for complete body submersion. There is nothing like a hot bath to soak aching arthritic joint or relax those back, shoulder and neck muscles.
If you’ve been looking at options for your elderly or handicapped parent or family member, Walk In Bathtubs provide a great solution. Walk In Bathtubs are easy to use, safe, and allow your loved ones to maintain their independence for the private task of bathing. There is a wide selection of sizes, colors, and options for Walk In Bathtubs at Simply Bathtubs, and they are the lowest prices you can find for quality Bath & Shower craftsmanship.
