Baby Boomers are now beginning to retire and most have mobility issues. Resulting in an increase in bathroom injuries due to falling when entering or leaving the bathtub. Arthritis, joint pain, back pain, and general body aches and pains, are but a few issues seniors and those with disabilities face every day when bathing thereby creating some very serious safety concerns, and a whole new industry in recent years.
Enter the walk in tub .
Walk in bathtubs have become extremely popular and necessary, along with other bathing accessories such as grab bars, slip resistant surfaces, bath lifts, transfer benches and safety seats. They are installed in retirement homes, assisted care facilities, hospitals, and in your home. As walk in bathtubs popularity has increased in the past few years, so has the cost of not only buying a walk in bathtub but the installation costs have gone through the roof as well.
Not everyone can afford to spend $5000.00 – $25,000 for a supplied and installed walk in tub and as a result are faced with some hard and possibly quite life changing choices. One of these choices is having to move out of the home which as been a safe environment for many years if not a lifetime, and moving into a seniors assisted care facility resulting in the loss of freedom and independence. This can also result in future health challenges.
