What Is the Best Tub for the Elderly?
Homeowners and their loved ones should be able to live in their homes safely and comfortably. One area of the home that causes concern for older homeowners is the bathroom, specifically the bathtub and shower area. Bathtubs with high thresholds are difficult to enter and exit safely and can cause trips and falls. Additionally, slippery floors can also make the already difficult task of entering and exiting the tub that much more dangerous. That’s why many elderly homeowners opt for safer bathtub options. Among all the different options, walk-in tubs are unquestionably the best tub for elderly homeowners in terms of safety and comfort.
Why Walk-In Tubs Are Best for Elderly Homeowners
For starters, walk-in bathtubs are easier to enter and exit than high-threshold tubs. Many of these types of tubs feature low thresholds and anti-slip floors to help prevent falls and subsequent injuries. Many models are also equipped with seating that allows for safe soaking without having to bend down to the floor. And, many walk-in tubs can be equipped with unique safety features such as handrails that can help you steady yourself when sitting or standing.
