BATHROOM RELATED INJURIES ARE COMMON FOR SENIORS!
With thousands of Baby Boomers entering their golden days each year, the number of seniors living at home alone has increased dramatically and will continue to do so in the decades to come. And, as Boomers move into their 70’s and beyond, one of the greatest risks they face are home-related injuries – particularly in the bathroom. For individuals and families that mostly shower, it creates a safer environment that drastically reduces the potential for slips and falls. It helps seniors or physically-challenged individuals maintain independence in their own home.

THE AMOUNT OF TIME TO FILL AND DRAIN THE TUB:
Because a walk-in tub has a door in the side of the tub itself, you cannot add or drain water while the door is open. This means you’ll spend a LOT of time sitting in the tub while waiting for it to fill as well as time waiting for it to drain before you can exit the tub...and that's just chilling!
INSTALLATION COST: Walk-in tubs can be pricey. The price of a walk-in tub can vary, however the costs with installation runs up to $10,000+ depending on the complexity of the construction needed for installation.
Another concern with a walk-in tub is temperature. Since you must enter the tub before filling it, there is no chance to adjust the water and get it just right before exposing your body to the water.
Some tubs have swing-out doors for easier access. While the swing-out doors can make the tub easier to enter, it also brings the possibility of flooding should the door not be latched properly. If not secured properly, the weight of the water in a filling tub could cause the door to open and dozens of gallons of water to spill out into your home. While doors are also water sealed, there is always the chance of a seal failure that could also lead to leaks or flooding.
