Walk-In Tubs: More Than a Soak

For many who use them, the greatest benefit of portable walk-in tubs still remains the relaxation one can get from a good soak in a hot bath. Walk-in bathtubs allow seniors and others with movement issues to bathe comfortably and get all the benefits of a warm bath.

At Heavenly Walk-In Tubs, we’re here to tell you that our products are more than just a comfortable soak, though. Let’s look at each of the specific benefits you receive from our tubs.

Safety

The primary benefit of our tubs for many users is the safety they offer. Everyone worries about slips and falls in the bathroom, but particularly seniors and others who struggle with movement. This can lead to a lack of desire to bathe based on fear of accidents taking place.

With our tubs, you can get that same comfort without the risk of injury. A bath becomes a safer option right away, even if you or a loved one has significant movement issues. There are numerous specific safety features, including slip-resistant areas and multiple bars and handles for balance.

Therapy

Baths are also a fantastic form of therapy, great for those struggling with arthritis or other pain issues as they age. Our tubs offer significant hydrotherapy benefits along with their safety elements – you or a loved one can get a relaxing, therapeutic bath in a safe environment that increases your excitement level about getting in the tub.

Independence

For many seniors in normal baths or showers, assistance will be needed from a nurse or family members to get in and out when bathing. This is not particularly dignified, but many seniors simply resign themselves to this.

With a walk-in tub, self-sufficiency is much easier to maintain. Seniors or those struggling with a handicap can feel more involved with their direct care, and more independent from requiring assistance for such a basic task.
