In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the primary timing elements that often come into play for individuals or families considering the purchase of a walk-in bathtub. Timing is just one of several important factors you’ll be thinking about during this period, and it’s meaningful for both financial and other reasons.
At Heavenly Walk-In Tubs, we’re happy to help with any and all details when it comes to our portable hydrotherapy walk-in tubs, including timing factors that might be involved. Here are a few different scenarios that might necessitate a walk-in tub purchase and installation, including a few unique ones that may not necessarily be common situations, but may impact many of our customers.
New Home Construction
In many cases, particularly among those who have saved up for years or decades to do so, recent retirees look to build their own new home to live in once they retire. In this situation, anyone who has experienced even minor knee or joint issues is well-served to consider a walk-in tub installation as part of the new home construction.
Because many elements of construction will already be taking place, it’s easy to schedule delivery and installation of the tub as part of the process. Even if this is for a new home for the entire family, one with a senior or someone else with a disability living with them, these same themes apply.
Specific Medical Advice
In other situations, usually pertaining directly to seniors or those with specific physical conditions, a doctor or another medical professional may recommend a walk-in tub as part of required care elements. Walk-in tubs provide fantastic benefits in terms of hydrotherapy and other wellness-related areas, often helping many older individuals deal with chronic pain and related factors in ways that were not previously available to them. While finances might be a factor here, speak to our staff about affordable payment programs for our tubs – which are already more affordable than you might have thought.
Non-Senior Mobility Concerns
Finally, while seniors are some of the most common folks who experience movement and comfort issues associated with bathing, they are not the only ones. Many people can experience significant joint and muscle pain, whether due to injury or a variety of specific conditions that may impact younger individuals as well. Walk-in tubs are designed for anyone who has movement or comfort problems in a normal bathtub, and just because you aren’t reaching senior age absolutely does not mean you can’t consider one.
