More and more, residents of Memphis, Tennessee, are opting to stay in their homes when they reach retirement age, rather than moving to an often smaller, more easily accessible home. Because of this, the need for aging-in-place upgrades has grown, with one of the most popular being walk-in tubs. At ContractingPRO, we can provide you with a masterfully crafted walk-in-tub that will provide numerous benefits, including:
Safety & Independence
Did you know that more than a third of seniors over the age of 65 slip and fall each year—and that 80% of those falls occur in the bathroom? If your mobility is compromised, walk-in tubs are a great solution. Unlike traditional tubs that are designed with a high basin wall you have to step over, walk-in tubs feature a low step entry threshold that’s only a few inches, so you can walk right in and out with a minimized risk of tripping and falling. This will increase your independence and dignity when you use the bathroom, improving your quality of life for years to come.
Since bathing can become increasingly difficult for those with limited mobility who use traditional bathtubs, their personal hygiene can also begin to suffer. Walk-in tubs make it easier to do things like clean wounds and irritated skin, and generally keep up with good hygiene habits.
Using water to help combat physical pain is a long proven medical concept. Walk-in tubs can be designed with advanced hydrotherapy, including features such as therapeutic air and whirlpool jets, which will release a steady stream of warm water to release tight muscles and stimulate the release of endorphins. By combining heat, buoyancy, and massage, the symptoms of conditions such as fibromyalgia and arthritis are eased.
