There’s nothing quite like relaxing in a warm soapy bath after a tough day. But for some people, that little luxury can be tricky because they find it hard to get in and out of the bath.
If this sounds familiar to you, or is affecting someone in your family, you don’t have to be denied the pleasure of a full length soak. Often it’s just a simple case of adapting your bath to suit any mobility needs. And the good news is there are many options available that don’t cost a fortune. Better still, many of the options can be installed simply and without any disruption at all.
From bath lifts to walk-in baths, there will be a solution to fit your needs.
Don’t deny yourself the luxury of a relaxing soak
Sometimes we all need a little more help to do things and with a bit of planning you can still do what you enjoy.
You may be surprised to know that many of the solutions for easy-access bathing can be immediate and simple.
The easiest solution to a full-seated bathing experience is of course the inflatable air cushion. It’s exactly as it says – a cushion that sits at the bottom of your standard bath which lowers you down at the push of a button. When you push it again, it inflates and lifts you back up out of the water. The great thing about the air cushion is that it’s easy to store and you can take it anywhere.
If you’re looking for something a little more robust, a bath belt works in a similar way. A slim wall mounted unit uses a comfortable and sturdy belt to gently lower you in and out of the bath. The belt is strong enough to carry 20 stone and you won’t need to do any major alterations to your bathroom.
I enjoyed a bath for the first time in 3 ½ years and I shall certainly recommend you to my friends. Lawson, Bournemouth
What is a walk-in bath?
Walk-in baths are bath tubs specifically designed for people with restricted mobility whether that be through age, injury or disability. They usually come with a cleverly designed door which allows for easy access into the bath and are fitted with a number of safety features to give you full peace of mind.
They are the ultimate in safety as the door in the side of the bath allows for low-level, easy access. Nationwide Mobility has a range of walk-in baths to suit your budget – all designed carefully to reduce the risk of accidents. Our experienced installation team can usually install one in the same day with minimal disruption and we’ll even remove your old bath too.
Having mobility issues doesn’t mean you can’t bathe in comfort. Take a look at the range of walk-in baths in our brochure or give us a call to chat about how we can help you.
