In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the common situations where homeowners decide it’s time to install a walk-in tub. Often connected to a senior loved one either moving in or beginning to develop mobility issues, walk-in tubs are enormously beneficial in these situations – and in several others, as well.
At Heavenly Walk-In Tubs, we’re happy to offer a wide range of portable hydrotherapy walk-in tub options, with features beneficial to a variety of different client types, including seniors. Today’s part two of our series will go over a few other situations where homeowners often decide now is the right time for a walk-in bathtub, including one or two you may not have considered previously.
New Home Construction
In many situations, those reaching retirement age or close to it will have saved up for many years or decades, often with the intent of building their own new home they can live out the rest of their years in. This may be done individually or with a partner.
And in many such cases, installing a walk-in bathtub as part of new home construction is simply the sensible move. Those who have already begun to experience aches and pains in their muscles and joints may not want to hear it, but these issues only tend to worsen as you age further – but having a walk-in tub with hydrotherapy properties on-hand will help keep you comfortable and limit pain in several scenarios. They will also keep you and others safe while bathing, even if you reach an aging point down the line where slips and falls are a greater risk.
The Perfect Tub Features
In other cases, homeowners might be on the casual lookout for improved tub options – when suddenly they see the perfect walk-in tub being featured, whether in a sale or just as a prominent piece on a website. The tub has numerous features that directly benefit you or a loved one, and maybe you’ve been putting off this purchase for a while because you couldn’t find the right type. When it presents itself, don’t hesitate.
Non-Senior Mobility Concerns
Finally, while much of the walk-in tub market is seniors who are dealing with age-related mobility concerns, such issues are not reserved only for seniors. Joint and muscle pain can be caused by numerous factors, including some that impact younger people – injuries, bursitis, arthritis and several other forms of chronic pain, including those that make bathing uncomfortable or even unsafe. Just because you’re in a younger age range does not mean you cannot benefit from a walk-in tub; in fact, numerous younger individuals have purchased our products and raved about their results.
