Lifestyle Remodeling shares the latest recommendations for mobility-challenged persons who want the option of choosing baths over showers

Over the next two decades, more than 7,000 Americans will turn 65 every day. As the population ages, more and more will be looking for solutions that will help them stay in their homes. One such solution is the addition of a walk-in bath.

“So many people stop taking baths and use only showers because it is hard for them to step up over the side of the tub,” says Jeff Stavish, vice president of Lifestyle Remodeling, which specializes in walk-in bathtubs. “There’s no reason people should have to give up pleasures like taking a bath simply because they get older.”

Lifestyle Remodeling has earned the Certified Aging in Place Specialists (CAPS) designation from the National Association of Home Builders. They offer a wide range of options, including “regular” and “hybrid” walk-in tubs. The main differences between the two types of walk-in tubs are size and opening direction of the tub door. On a regular tub, the door opens inward; on hybrid tubs, the door opens outward.

“We offer several varieties of hybrid tubs,” says Stavish. “For those who are already using walkers, or are in wheelchairs or scooters, the hybrid walk-in tub is a perfect solution. For our customers who are experiencing declining mobility, we suggest they look at the hybrid now so they will be prepared for their future.”

Lifestyle Remodeling installs Rane Bathing Systems and American Standard tubs. Rane, based in Sparta, Tennessee, is the leading manufacturer of institutional safety tubs and residential walk-in tubs and has more than 30 years experience. American Standard has been in business for more than 140 years and their tubs are manufactured in the U.S.

“When you purchase a walk in bathtub or hydrotherapy system from Lifestyle Remodeling,” says Lifestyle president Cenk (Jank) Sulker, “you will have the satisfaction of working with a company that looks after your every need. We handle your purchase, installation completion and everything in between. We take great pride in our workmanship and believe that a satisfied customer is our greatest asset.”

In addition to offering walk-in tubs, Lifestyle Remodeling offers sunrooms, patio enclosures, lanai enclosures, three and four season sunrooms, and custom glass rooms.
