Taking a bath can be a relaxing way to end the day, but for some, it is the only method of maintaining proper hygiene. Unfortunately, the elderly and those with physical disabilities or injuries are often unable to stand in the shower and need to use a bathtub but have trouble stepping in and out safely. The bathroom remodeling experts at Indy Renovation can install a walk-in tub or do a tub conversion to your existing tub or shower. With a walk-in tub, you can walk in through a door instead of stepping over the tub wall. Here are a few benefits to consider if you want to add convenience and safety to your home with a walk-in tub.
1. Promote Independence
Having your independence taken away when you are sick, injured, or growing older can be painful and embarrassing for most people. With a walk-in tub, you can maintain independence and privacy in your daily routine because you can safely enter and exit the bathtub and bathe comfortably. 4
2. Prevent Accidents
Anyone can fall in the bathtub and injure themselves, not just the elderly or sick. Our easy to use walk-in tubs can prevent dangerous accidents from occurring with non-slip flooring and built-in handrails.
3. Ease Pain
Soaking in a comfortable tub of warm water can help loosen tight joints, ease pain, and soothe aching muscles. This is beneficial to anyone suffering from injuries, chronic illness, or just a long day at work.
4. Be an Effective Caretaker
Many people want to care for their ailing loved ones but don’t have the proper safety features in their home to effectively meet their needs. Installing a walk-in bathtub allows you to live with a physically challenged or elderly loved one for as long as possible instead of moving your loved one to an assisted living facility.
