Bathroom / September 4, 2018 / Romina Doran
These give you the benefit of being able to sit down in a bathtub and relax, but still being able to get in and out of the tub much more easily. Many elderly people use these kinds of tubs simply because they offer so much value when it comes to a relaxing bath that can help ease aches and pains. While these tubs generally require a separate shower and are not for everyone, they are worth considering if baths are something you do not want to give up.
Lifting your foot up and over the tub edge, and the balance required to do that, can become difficult in later years. But some people still want a step in tub for a number of reasons. Others may prefer a stand alone shower that does not have a tub attached to it. Then there are curbless shower options no lip on the edge of them, so you can roll a walker, wheelchair, or transfer chair right across the edge.
