    Take a Stand Against Mobility Issues with a Walk-In Tub or Shower

    Walk In Bathtubs For Seniors

    Reduced mobility due to age or injury can be challenging to cope with. It can feel like you’re no longer the person you used to be, unable to complete even the simplest of daily tasks. Your mobility can limit even your ability to tend to your personal hygiene, and in some cases, the problems are bad enough that you might consider giving up your home. But that doesn’t have to be the case. Your reduced mobility doesn’t have to define or control you. Keep reading to learn how a walk-in tub can help you take a stand against limited mobility.

    Reclaim Independence while Bathing

    For those with reduced mobility, surrendering their private bathing time is one of the most difficult things to face. It’s an invasion of your privacy and can feel incredibly embarrassing, even if you only need help getting in and out of the tub. A walk-in tub gives you back that independence and privacy you so desperately crave.

    With a lower entry step, high seat, easily accessible controls, and handheld shower wand, you can comfortably bathe yourself again. You don’t have to worry about climbing over a tub wall or being able to pull yourself up from a low, reclined position. In a walk-in tub, you’re safe without having to give up any privacy.

    Stay in Your Home

    When mobility declines, many people assume that the next logical step is to move to a care facility. But this doesn’t have to happen. Many senior citizens are finding ways to make their homes more accessible so that they can age in place, right in the comfort of their own homes. A walk-in tub is a key component of this, making bathrooms safer and more accessible. But you may also want to look at other home upgrades, like stairlifts and outdoor ramps, to further improve your ability to age in place.

    Ease Aches and Pains

    A large portion of senior citizens with reduced mobility also suffer from aches and pains throughout their bodies. These pains may be caused by arthritis or another medical condition, but whatever their cause, they can further contribute to your mobility troubles, making it more challenging to get around your own home. Our walk-in tubs come standard with hydrotherapy jets to help massage away those aches and pains, relieve joint stiffness and swelling, and improve blood circulation to not only help you feel more like yourself but to help you move more like yourself too.

    If you feel like your mobility issues are controlling your life, it’s time to take a stand. Reclaim your independence with a walk-in tub, walk-in shower, or walk-in tub with shower attachment. We offer all these options and more so that you can once again feel comfortable and capable in your own home. Give us a call today to learn more about our accessible bathing products.
