1. Combat Mobility Limits and Plan for the Future

Walk-in bathtubs are a great solution to your mobility limits. Avoid the dangerous big step with an easy step-in tub. The step to enter a walk-in tub is only a few inches, a drastic improvement over the more than 15-inch edge of an average bathtub. Whether you use a scouter, walker, or wheelchair in your home, a walk-in bathtub will make the transition into the tub easy. 

Modifying your bathroom with a walk-in tub is a small shift that can transform your independent living options. Even though you may not need this feature now, adding a walk-in bathtub will preserve your dignity and give you peace of mind in the years to come. 

2. Soothe Your Body with Hydrotherapy 

Hydrotherapy is what athletes use to soak their stressed muscles after a tough workout. Water has been used to cure pain since ancient times. A walk-in tub with whirlpool jets combines heat and massage to relax your pains. If you struggle with arthritis, fibromyalgia, poor circulation, or many other conditions, the warm water and steam can enhance your body’s natural healing processes.

3.  Avoid Slips or Falls 

Slips and falls are a major concern for elderly people. Injuries abound for people who have an accident while washing up. Recovering from such an accident will take a long time, and the costs of a slip in the shower can be extreme. You can end up paying thousands of dollars for a visit to the hospital after falling in the bathroom. Avoid a slip and fall accident in the bathroom with a walk-in bathtub.

4. Walk-in Bathtubs can be used as Showers 

Walk-in bathtubs can have features including an extendable showerhead allowing you to spray down or soak. This feature can help ensure you get the care you need while a shower is still available.
