If mobility is becoming more than just a worry and a real problem for you or a loved one, then you may find bathing is becoming an issue. If this is the case, then it will be worth your while considering installing walk in baths or easy access showers in your home.

How Can A Walk In Bath Help Me?

If this is a question you’re asking yourself, then you’re in for a treat. You may be finding it ever more difficult to climb in and out of a bath. If this is the case, then a walk in bath is exactly what you need.

There are no surprises when it comes to these wonderful appliances; they do exactly what they say on the tin. A walk-in bath features doors, which open inwards, that allow users to simply open them and stroll right in. They eliminate the need to clamber over the side of the tub and removes any worries of slips and spills.

All you’re left with is complete peace of mind as you let the soothing waters lap around you and notice the aches, pains and stress of the day melt away. These are particularly great for regaining independence at bath time as there is little extra assistance required to enter and exit these tubs. For even greater access, a number of bath lifts and other accessories are available too.

Accessible baths are designed to make bathing a pleasure again. We have a comprehensive range of tubs, all with different sizes, features and fixings, available at Bathtime Mobility. Many models are available for hands-on use at our Henley-on-Thames showroom. If you’d like to arrange a visit, simply get in touch!

What About Easy Access Showers?

If you’re finding bending or stretching an issue, to the point where a bath is out of the question, then an accessible shower could be the answer to your problems. These are coupled with low access shower trays, either set just above (up to 40mm) or flush with the floor, which allow users to enter and exit with no trouble.

These come equipped with a number of features that make showering easier. For starters, the shower tray will have a anti-slip coating. This is essential as it can prove disastrous for people with limited mobility if they were to slip or fall in the shower area. Anti-slip shower trays provide peace of mind on this issue.

In addition, grab handles are often installed. These are there to aid getting in and out of the enclosure and can provide extra stability while showering too. If your bathroom is too small for a bath tub, but you would still like to sit whilst bathing, then shower seats are available too.

So you can see that if you or a loved one has restricted mobility then these easy access features will make them enjoy bathing once more.
