I recently heard a heartbreaking story about a senior, just getting over a medical procedure, who was attempting to get into a garden tub. As you know, this typically requires stepping down into the huge tub from the floor level. Because of her
But what about next time. Her recovery from surgery would now take much, much longer, and the pain and discomfort from the new accident would make her wonder if life was worth living. This sad story could be retold many times over, from so many that have faced similar accidents. It doesn't have to happen. There is a solution.
The Walk In Tub was designed to protect against accidents like this. It stands on level ground as a free standing tub . There is a sturdy door where one can enter and sit down. The threshold while walking in is just a few inches. The seat is ADA compliant for comfort and ease in rising and
sitting. The interior
grab bar takes the pressure off the back and knees when rising. There is no fear of falling because the tub
is compact and protective on all sides.
The slip resistant floor and seat further insure the safety of the tub.
Once inside, you can enjoy the warm water as a soaking bath, with a hand held shower sprayer just fingertips away. Or, if you really want to relax just press a button to engage the air jetted therapeutic bubbles that soothe every inch of the body.
Then, turn on the water jets for a stimulating massage, as the inline heater keeps the water warm for a long, invigorating soak.
Remember this. Fear of falling is the number one concern for seniors. So many suffer with vertigo, lightheadedness, and a general lack of balance. This makes for an accident just waiting to happen. Falling is one fear that we can eliminate in the bathroom. Many grown children are realizing how important this can be for their parents, and they are teaming with other siblings to make the surprise purchase for their parents. No greater way to say, "I love you."
