What You Should Know About Walk-In Bathtubs

In recent years you may have heard more and more people talking about walk-in bathtubs. If you or a loved one have mobility issues from age or chronic illness, you might want to consider a bathroom remodel to install a walk-in tub. Here’s what you should know about walk-in tubs before deciding whether or not to get one.

They’re Safer than Traditional Tubs

You may have asked yourself already, “Are there really that many benefits of walk-in tubs for seniors?” The answer is yes, and the most important benefit is safety. One of the leading causes of injury and death for seniors in the United States is slips and falls, which are especially common in bathrooms.

Walk-in bathtubs are customizable to your mobility needs, with options for seating, anti-slip flooring, handrails and showerheads. Their swinging doors allow you to enter the tub without having to clear the high threshold that traditional tubs have, and their seats are easier to stand up from. The controls for the bath are also within easy reach of the person bathing.

They Provide Independence

One of the benefits that make investing in a walk-in bathtub worth it for so many is the independence they get to keep. Having a walk-in tub makes personal hygiene safer and easier for those with mobility problems, allowing them to do more without as much help. Walk-in tubs assist many seniors to preserve their independence and can even help them stay in their own homes for longer without help.

Walk-In Tubs Have Health Benefits

In addition to safety and independence, walk-in tubs with hydrotherapy jets also benefit those with illnesses that impair their mobility. The jets can relieve things like muscle tightness and poor circulation, which are symptoms of arthritis, fibromyalgia and more. With these benefits, getting around outside the bathroom as well as inside it can be made easier.

Walk-In tubs have many benefits for seniors and other individuals with mobility issues. If you would like to know more about walk-in bathtubs and bathroom renovations, contact Legacy Bath & Kitchen today.
