Getting in and out of the bath is something that many take for granted when they are younger. As we age and start to get aches and pains in our joints, we need to take extra care with everyday tasks, such as getting into and out of the bath. If you are concerned that your mobility is declining, or you are simply thinking ahead and anticipating your future needs, it’s important to ensure you have effective bathing aids in place for your comfort and security. Below are our top picks for helpful aids for getting in & out of the bath, to help yourself or loved one bathe safely, comfortably and with dignity.
3 Helpful Aids For Getting In & Out of The Bath:
1. Grab Rails
Grab rails are an excellent way of helping to provide more stability for disabled people when getting in and out of the bath.
They are available in a variety of sizes and finishes to suit your bathroom.
The good news is they and are very affordable too, with options starting from just a few pounds.
2. Bath Lifts
A bath lift is especially useful for people suffering from mobility issues, such as Arthritis. They are available in a variety of designs, which can be easily fitted onto an existing bathtub.
At the simple touch of a button, a bath lift will lower you safely to the bottom of the bath and will then raise you smoothly back to the top again.
Their advantage is that they lower you right down to the bottom of the bath so you can lie back and enjoy a good soak.
It’s worth noting that bath lifts don’t provide back support. This means it’s important to have good sitting balance in order to use bath lifts safely.
3. Walk-in Baths
You can’t beat a nice long, relaxing soak in a bath – it’s a British tradition. With Assistive Bathing’s wide range of walk-in-baths, that pleasure cannot be denied to you anymore. The low access inward opening door allows easy entry and exit.
Walk-in baths are the most luxurious of baths available today. They provide a pleasant experience for individuals who need special care and who will actually look forward to bathing every time and enables them to lead healthy and independent lives in the comfort of their own home.
With a walk-in bath, individuals can bathe on their own, without having the need for someone to hoist them over a standard bath side.
Our range of walk-in baths have been designed with careful consideration of the needs of people who have mobility problems. They are equipped with a number of key safety features to reduce the risk of accidents during bathing:
- They have inward opening doors that allow low-level easy access and slip-resistant surfaces to minimise the chances of slipping even when the floor area is wet
- Temperature controlled mixer taps, easy to turn
