The Bathroom Is Full of Ways to Hurt Yourself
Falling in the bathroom is a serious issue among seniors. Getting in or out of a tub or shower can be very dangerous. Slipping on wet shower or tub surfaces, or wet floors is where the most danger can occur.
Most bathrooms have many hard surfaces that can get wet and slick: tile, porcelain, cast iron, marble etc. We have gone to great efforts to develop accessories that bring added safety and ease-of-use.
Slip and Fall Accidents
The Center for Disease and Prevention reported online in its weekly Morbidity and Mortality report that in the U.S., 234,094 non-lethal injuries among people aged 15 years and above were caused by accidents occurring near sinks, toilets, bathtubs, and showers. It was also reported that the injury rate increases with age.
Walk-In Tubs Make Bathing Safer
Using a walk-in tub is one of the safest ways to take a bath or shower with little or no assistance. Heavenly Walk-In Tubs allow you to take a soaking bath without the obstacle of having to climb in or out of a tub, thereby reducing the risk of falling. The benefit of having a walk-in tub is that it allows you to live safe and independent longer, and gives you peace-of-mind that you can stay in the home you love.
