    Getting in and out of the bath is something that many take for granted. For those with limited mobility, it's vital to take extra care with everyday tasks and bathing is no exception.

    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 and out of the bath, to help you bath comfortably and with dignity.

     

    Grab Rails

    Often the simplest solution is the best. Grab rails are an excellent way of helping to provide more stability for those that are less mobile. They can be placed in strategic points around a room.
    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.

    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 a good sitting balance in order to use bath lifts safely.
