A well-designed bathroom with a great tub can be a sort of comfort and pleasure for many homeowners. But, a traditional tub isn’t always the best idea for seniors with disabilities. Anyone with mobility issues or poor balance risks slipping and falling when stepping into a bathtub or shower. Also, a standard tub you lie down in isn’t always that comfortable for those with arthritis or osteoporosis. That is where Ella’s Bubbles walk-in tubs can help.
The right walk-in tub can make independent bath-time a breeze.
No senior wants to lose their sense of independence in the bathroom. But, the risk factors of old age mean that the current set-up isn’t always suitable. In some cases, seniors may struggle to lead an independent life in their own home and face the difficult decision to move into a more age-appropriate apartment.
A walk-in tub is a simple adaptation for any home, assisted living apartment, or retirement complex. Users can just open the door, get comfortable on the seat, and enjoy the hot water in peace. The door seals shut, nice and tight, with no risk of leaks.
In fact, it makes sense for developers to lean into this trend now that the Baby Boomer generation is reaching retirement age. Before long, we will have a lot of seniors in need of a more comfortable and convenient solution. The alternative is to provide physical support to lift relatives into their old tub or to hire a caregiver. This means no self-reliance in the bathroom, long term costs, and potential damage to relationships.
Our walk-in tubs are popular with seniors because they come in several shapes and sizes to suit the room. From there, you can order extra features to enhance the experience and make things easier. These options include handheld showerheads, hydro-therapy water and air jets, foot massagers, and other items to make life easier for occupants.
However, the star feature of these tubs has to be Ella’s Bubbles Microbubble therapy system. This system creates billions of tiny bubbles in the water for a soothing spa-like session. The bubbles oxygenate the water until it comes alive and acts as a natural exfoliant and enhance detoxification.
feature-loaded Ella walk-in tubs can improve bath-time for our growing senior population.
