For elderly and those people who suffer from mobility issues such as arthritis, copying with daily life can be extremely difficult. The modern world and all the obstacles that it provides can take up a lot of time and energy, two things that are often in short supply when suffering from a debilitating mobility issue.
By turning your bathroom into one which has been designed to improve your accessibility and encourage a more enjoyable experience, with disability baths and features, you can drastically improve your standard of living and be prepared to face the world with a smile on your face.
Disability Baths For Your Home
Baths which have been designed for the disabled are ideal for those who suffer from restricted mobility. Easy to enter and exit, these models are the ideal solution for many elderly and disabled users. Whether you prefer a walk-in design, which can drastically reduce the risk of suffering a trip or fall whilst entering the bath, or a power-assisted model, you will be able to find the ideal bath for your needs.
Walk-in baths are suitable for those users who have limited ground clearance, and struggle to get over the lip of a bathtub. By opening the door and sitting on the comfortable, typically contoured seat, the bather can control the water temperature using thermostatically controlled taps. This can make the entire process that much more comfortable, as you can immediately enjoy a warm bath.
Power-assisted baths, however, are suitable for those who want to enjoy the traditional bathing experience. By taking a seat outside of the bath, the power-assisted seat will lift you over the lip of the bath and gently lower you into the water. This means that you can effectively enjoy a traditional bath, but with the advantage of a comfortable seat as well.
A comfortable bathing experience can really make a difference on your standard of living. By being able to clean yourself and relax in a nice, hot bath, you can reduce the pain from illnesses like arthritis and improve your mood for the rest of the day.
Other Bathroom Features
By including other bathroom features, including non-slip mats and handrails, you can drastically improve your bathroom’s overall safety and drastically reduce the risk of falling or stumbling. With handrails at low-points on your bathroom’s wall, you will be able to stand again, even if you do happen to fall over. This is a great way to effectively improve your independence, even if you suffer from disabilities like arthritis and gout.
