If you or someone you care for has a disability or mobility issue, you may already realize that you have numerous mobility challenges in your North Georgia home. This is especially true when it comes to the difficulties associated with bathing. But there is hope. There are aging in place designs that can greatly assist in overcoming these domestic obstacles. Which is the most appropriate selection for you, a walk-in bathtub or an accessible shower?
- Walk-in Tubs: Walk-in bathtubs are a great choice for those who are only mildly restricted in mobility or who require the therapeutic benefits of hydrotherapy for sports or other injuries. The tub has a door which allows for a comfortable and safe access and a generous seat to ensure a comfortable and secure bathing experience. For persons with disabilities who are able to mobilize without a wheelchair, the walk-in bathtub is often preferred to an accessible shower for the home.
- Accessible Showers: Accessible showers are the answer for those who use wheelchairs or other mobility devices. These showers are level with the floor, making the transition from wheelchair to shower chair as smooth and safe a process as possible, conquering mobility challenges in your north Georgia home.
- Handicap Accessible Bathtub Shower Combination: A third option, a handicap accessible bathtub shower combination, affords ease of access getting in, and the comfort of using a shower to bathe.
So, should you choose a walk-in bathtub or an accessible shower? Determine the needs and abilities of the primary user to ensure the correct choice, and then enjoy the freedom of independent living in your north Georgia home.
