Reduce the Risk

In Chapel Hill, NC, ADA certified shower bathtub combos are in high-demand thanks to the increased safety that they offer.

Traditional bathtubs and showers often have a high threshold that has to be stepped over in order to enter or exit. This threshold, while it may seem small to younger people or those without mobility impairments, can pose a real challenge and risk to the elderly.

Slips, falls, and other accidents that might be minor for others can be very serious for older individuals. However, a specialty bathtub and shower has no threshold, non-slip flooring, and other great features that make it much safer for elderly people.

Increased Independence

Imagine never being able to shower or bathe without someone standing over you and helping you every step of the way. 

Just as you wouldn’t want to shower with an audience, neither do your elderly loved ones.Thankfully, a special elderly shower can make it easier and safer for older adults to bathe on their own or at least with minimal assistance.

Enjoy Fast Draining and More

A specialty elderly bathtub often comes equipped with many great features that make it safer for older users, but that can also be enjoyable for everyone in the family.

Specialty bathtubs, for example, often drain faster than normal bathtubs. This reduces the amount of time users have to sit in the bathtub after bathing. And, while this increases safety and comfort for older people, it’s a nice feature for anyone to enjoy.

Likewise, these bathtubs often come equipped with special seating, massaging jets, and more that the whole family, not just the elderly members can enjoy.
