Not only do we offer a wide range of bathroom modifications to make any home more accessible for the elderly or mobility impaired, but we also offer free in-home assessments, instructions on how to use various mobility products, and general help and advice every step of the way.
In Durham, NC, ADA certified bathtub modifications can take many different forms. However, one of the simplest and most effective modifications we offer are our grab bars.
Grab bars can be used to help elderly individuals safely enter and exit the tub. They provide greater stability and make it easier and safer to move in and around the bathtub area.
Our grab bars are available in many different colors and finishes so that you can enjoy their functionality without sacrificing style. We’ll even install our grab bars for you and provide effective instruction on how best to use them.
A specially designed elderly bathtub is a nice investment, but can be expensive. If you don’t have the means to install a totally new tub just yet, don’t worry. There are other options.
For example, you could use a bathtub chair or other assistive device. These chairs can provide balance and support while in the bathtub. They also provide a safe place to rest if your elderly loved one needs a break before or during transfer into or out of the bathtub. Good bathing chairs offer a no-slip grip to prevent sliding and other hazards.
Turn any tub into an elderly bathtub by using appropriately-placed non-slip mats in and around the bathing area.
These simple, secure mats grip firmly to the surface of the tub or floor to provide a safe, less-slippery environment for elderly people to stand and move.
