This internal heater can assist in keeping bathers at a comfortable temperature before and after bathing. Internal heaters are only available on select models; customers are invited to contact an Aging Safely representative for a no cost consultation.

Retirees everywhere are looking for ways to make aging at home safer and more cost effective. Many are trying to prevent dangerous falls from occurring by making simple improvements to the home and bathroom area; in an effort to be better prepared for the unexpected. Senior bathtubs and handicap shower systems can make a major difference to someone who has a fear of falling in the bathtub or shower, however installing a grab bar in difficult to maneuver locations is essential in order to add that extra level of security and peace of mind.
The elderly can especially become prone to having a dangerous fall. The bathroom can be one of the more accident prone rooms in the home. For seniors looking at different ways to cost effectively age in the home, versus consider long term care options such as assisted living, senior housing or a nursing home. One of these specialty walk in tubs may be the right solution to aging in place safely and cost effectively. The costs of long term care can be crippling, whereas the money invested as a preventative measure in a step in tub product can be a great investment.
There is something to be said about being able to age in the comfort of home. It is common knowledge that the elderly can suffer from depression and anxiety due to entering certain institutional type facilities, not to mention lose the will to live. Walk in tubs may not be the right solution for everyone, however many customers are experiencing independence from the comfort of home, and thriving while aging in place.
