Did you know, in 2005, as many as 3.3 million people ages 14 and up were in wheelchairs, and 10 million others needed canes, crutches, or walkers? When you have trouble getting around, day to day tasks are not easy. Bathing can be challenging, and needing assistance can be humiliating and cumbersome. How are more Americans bathing on their own, without help?
Walk In Bathtubs
Walk in tubs offer a variety of non slip features, including handrails, seats, a textured floor, and padding for users to rest their arms and head. Most tubs also include massage options with air jets, bubble jets, or whirlpool jets. Senior living homes and assisted living communities alike are embracing these tubs. Patrons or residents are just as happy as the tubs give them freedom and independence they may have lacked before. It almost goes without saying that walk in tubs are practical, but why else are they soaring in popularity?
With such a bleak economy, everything is about money. Installing a walk in bathtub makes it easier to sell your home, and raises the value of it, too. If you live in senior residences or retirement communities, the increase in value can be even greater. Why not live easier, and make money out of it, too?
