Walk-In Tubs for Seniors: 5 Reasons for Senior Citizens to Own a Walk In Tub
They call them “the golden years” for a reason. Being a senior citizen means time to live life the way you have always wanted. The mortgage is paid, the kids are grown, and there’s enough money in the retirement account to go on not working. However, the bones ache and the vision blurs and sometimes that bath or shower at the end of the day is more dangerous than soothing. Walk-in tubs for seniors can be exactly what a retired person needs to be independent and relaxed so that those golden years can be truly enjoyable.
1. The Comfort of Safety
A walk-in tub has a door on the side so that the user does not have to step over the wall of the tub to get in, and there is a seat so that the individual does not have to go all the way down to the floor. Grab bars make the process easier and safer.
2. Bathing Independently
When the senior citizen needs to step over the tub in order to get in, assistance is often needed not just for safety but because of other limitations. This person would then need help getting out and draining the tub afterward. Many walk-in tubs for seniors are equipped with fast-drain technology and faucets that are operated with ease. The user does not have to wait several minutes for the tub to drain before getting out and the door, seat, and grab bars make independent bathing simple.
3. Chromotherapy for The Mind
This is the use of colors to effect different conditions in nearly every part of the body. The different colors react to chakras or energies within the body and help to balance these energies. It is one of several spa features available in walk in tub models.
4. Hydrotherapy for the Body
Walk in tubs can also include therapeutic features for the body such as hydrotherapy that are proven to reduce blood pressure and ease muscle pain. The users safe bathing experience can also include letting go of sore muscles and help prolong those golden years to be enjoyed.
5. Benefits for the Rest of the Family
Walk-in tubs for seniors are not just for seniors. When the grandkids come to visit or any other guests are staying over, the convenience and spa features of a walk-in tub make bathing comfortable and soothing for them as well. Children can bathe independently or get in and out of the tub without being lifted over the wall — and everyone will love the spa features.
