The Benefits of Bath Lifts for the Elderly

by Bathtime Mobility on February 10, 2014 Comments Off on The Benefits of Bath Lifts for the Elderly

Tasks that we find simple and easy to achieve can sometimes become more difficult to perform as we get older. For less mobile people, day to day tasks become a struggle, often causing distress and upset. The inability to perform tasks such as bathing without assistance can leave elderly relatives feeling as though they have lost their independence. With a bath lift for the elderly installed, individuals who would otherwise have needed assistance, can regain their independence and enjoy the pleasure of bathing.


Give Back Their Independence With Bath Lifts For The Elderly

There are a number of products on the market to help the less mobile get in and out of their bath with ease. Walk in baths are an excellent solution for elderly individuals who are unable to climb in and out of baths, but are a decision that should not be taken lightly. The installation of a bath lift can be cost effective and cause minimum disruption.

A bath lift is a great addition to your bathroom as it will provide the user and/or carer with an unrivalled level of convenience and independence. A cost effective alternative, a bath lift for the elderly eliminates any of the inconveniences caused by a walk in bath. Gently and safely lowering the user in and out of the bath tub, a bath lift allows them to bathe, relax and pamper themselves without the worry of getting in and out. The user has the power to bathe whenever they wish, giving them back their independence and freedom.

A quality bath lift is exceptionally easy to use, and can be controlled using a hand-held unit. This means that user is in control, and if required, the carer as well. Most bath lifts for the elderly are lightweight and easy to install. Our Bellavita is portable and can be taken on holiday or to visit family and friends. If moving house, the Relaxa and Molly Bather can be removed from the wall and taken to the new property.

At Bathtime Mobility we offer the following bath lifts for elderly and less mobile people:


  • Relaxa Lift – featuring battery powered belt seat that gently lowers and raises the user in and out of the bath. The rechargeable battery lasts up to 20 lifts meaning there is no impediment to everyday bathing.
  • Molly Bather Bath Lift – Featuring a sturdy grab rail and stool for resting, drying and sliding over on to, this lift has a rechargeable battery with a cushioned seating belt.
  • Bellavita Bath Lift – Developed with the help of professional nurses to give a comfortable reclining bath lift, this has a broad seat and back rest for added balance and stability. Lowering down to a height of just 6cm, this is one of our most simple and practical lifts for the less mobile.
