Using water to help cure pain has been a proven medical concept since the ancient Egyptians. Walk-in tubs can be configured with advanced hydrotherapy, including therapeutic air and whirlpool jets. By combing heat, buoyancy and massage, these systems can ease away aches and pains.
An often overlooked benefit of walk in tubs is they easily operate as a stand up or sit down shower as well as a deep soaking tub. Quality providers will supply a faucet set with an extendable showerhead. This component can also be hung on a riser rod so the bather can chose to use it as a stand up shower or in a seated position. For adult children with live-in parents, this can be effective to have a dual-purpose walk in tub and shower capacity built-in.
The Center for Disease Control reports on the cost of falls among older adults. With the boomer generation constantly growing in size, these costs are expected to rise. The many falls that occur in the bathroom are a major concern of the rapidly aging population. The statistics are staggering. For example, the average hospital cost for a fall injury is $35,000. When considering investing in a walk in tub, be sure to factor the total costs and related problems associated with falls. Walk-In tubs can help significantly reduce these risks.
The topic of aging in place relates directly to the benefits of a walk in tub, especially considering the alternatives. More and more senior homeowners are deciding to live and stay in their own homes as long as possible. With the high costs of assisted living communities, Americans are turning to alternative solutions and home modifications to make staying at home possible. Many times, walk-in tubs are one of the first modifications done.
As bathing becomes more difficult, managing personal hygiene can also be challenging. How often are you bathing today?
