6 Benefits of a Walk-In Bathtub

Chicago Walk-in Bathtub

Walk-in baths are the perfect comfort item for seniors and the disabled. Bathing is much more than just getting clean for most people. At home, it is a time for relaxation and rejuvenation. Comfort has become the most sought after feature in terms of the bathing experience. For older people bathing with dignity is very significant. That is where walk-in baths come into play. The following are the 6 main benefits of walk-in baths.

Providing Convenience

Walk-in baths are all about comfort and convenience. For this reason, many elderly people use them completely. Seniors don’t need any assistance with walk-in baths. This is because the easily accessible door makes it convenient to enter the tub without having to step over the side as in the case of standard bath tubs. The ability to bathe without help means they can bathe whenever they want to. Which is much more convenient than waiting for assistance. The feature that differentiates walk-in tubs from traditional baths is the comfortable heated seat and back rest that allows you to sit and relax during your bath. This makes for a pleasant bathing experience all around.

Bathing Safety

Walk in baths are designed to provide safety and security while bathing. They make something that is a necessity most people take for granted easy for those with mobility issues. This can be a real life saver in many ways. Falling can be a substantial risk in regular bathtubs, but we must use them because bathing is essential for our health and well-being. This is why walk-in baths are an innovative substitute as they combine several grab bars in convenient locations to aid balance. Seniors and disabled users do not have to worry about excessive waiting to exit the tub. This is because our dual drain system enables us to empty significantly faster than traditional tubs. Depending on the plumbing in the home, this can be under two minutes. (+-80 seconds) Walk-in baths are available with a variety of options and in many sizes to fit any home. We have walk in baths that are designed for the wheelchair.  This makes it easy for them to slide into the seat of the tub through a large outward swing door.

Senior Independence

With the ease of use of walk-in baths, seniors and the disabled can bathe independently. This allows them to stay in their homes longer because they can care for themselves. Like most people, seniors desire privacy, independence and dignity. This is the main reason walk-in baths are growing in popularity and being installed in more homes than ever before.
