Is a walk-in tub the answer? What’s the question?

If lounging in a bathtub is a distant memory, stop imagining! Cleaning yourself in a tub is safe, therapeutic and can offer you a better quality of life. You CAN enjoy bathing .. because of the Walk-in-Bathtub.

These modern Walk-in-Tubs are not only functional but new designs make them incredibly stylish and actually affordable. There are several benefits to having a walk-in bathtub in your home, here are a few:

If you walk into a tub rather than step into it, there’s no fear slipping as you enter the tub. They are designed to have a low step, extra-large doors, anti-slip flooring, and well-placed handles throughout to help you bathe safely and independently, drastically lowering the risk of a devastating fall.

Most tubs also have relaxing hydro-massage jets. This kind of a bath can help massage away lower-back pain and help you manage symptoms associated with arthritis, circulation challenges, fibromyalgia or diabetes. Warm water relaxes tight muscles and stimulates the release of endorphins, your body’s natural painkillers.

As you get older, it is harder to reach, clean and exfoliate. And hydro-massage jets create all those fabulous, champagne-sized bubbles to clean and exfoliate your skin without the need for you to bend, twist and scrub. This kind of a bath will leave you feeling cleaner and more refreshed.

Some have heated seats that help keep you warm as the tub fills and drains – in fact the quick-drain process ensures you getting out quickly without getting a chill.

A walk-in tub will definitely add additional value to your home and will give you years of health benefits. Most come with a comprehensive lifetime warranty – so that you can make this major purchase with confidence.

The most important reason to buy a walk-in tub is the solution that it provides you and your loved ones. Whether you’re concerned about a spouse or are looking out for a parent, a walk-in tub can provide the solution.
