Premier Care in Bathing are the UK market leader in walk-in baths and easy access showers.
There are few things more enjoyable than relaxing in a warm bath in the evening. For many people whose body isn’t what it was at 20 this is one of the ways we like to unwind after a busy day.
While everyone enjoys a bath, as we age we often become less mobile, and less steady on our feet, and that can making bathing difficult. We are all keen to maintain our independence for as long as possible but this is a problem if we experience difficulties getting in and out of the bath without assistance. Some people will decide that the best option is to rely on a partner to help them to enter and leave the bath, others give up baths entirely and restrict themselves to showers, but this can present its own hazards.
One solution is to install a walk-in bath. There are a range of bath tubs that have been specially designed to make bathing simple and safe for those who are less stable on their feet.
What is a walk in bath?
To put it simply, a walk-in bath is a bath that you can enter without needing to climb over the side. A bath with a low level access door. You just open the door and sit down in the bath. You then close the door using the easy-action handle, and let the bath fill with warm water around you. Another feature which you can find on many walk-in baths is the simple lift powered seat which lets you enter and exit the bath with a single control. You sit on the seat and are taken up and down in the bath as needed, you no longer have to worry about struggling to stand up on the wet, slippery surface of the bath.
Can I fit a walk-in bath in my bathroom?
Almost all bathrooms are suitable for a walk-in bath. Walk-in baths come in many shapes and sizes to accommodate most bathroom designs. You can choose whether to have a bath door that opens inward or outward depending on whatever best suits your needs. If bathroom space is at a premium then the ultra-compact walk-in baths from companies like Premier Care In Bathing are the perfect choice. It may only have a small diameter but it still offers you the full depth bathing experience, which is perfect at the end of a tiring day.
How much do walk-in baths cost?
A good bathroom supplier will design a bathroom which is perfectly suited to your needs and as every bathroom is different the costs of purchasing and installing the baths can vary as well. It is possible that you may be entitled to a grant covering all or part of the cost of a walk-in bath. Your bath supplier will be able to advise you if this is the case.
Whichever type of walk-in bath you decide to choose you can be confident that you will be able to maintain your independence and safely relax in your bath long into the future without the risk of slipping, stumbling, or giving yourself an injury trying to enter your bath.
