Why Dr Hilary Jones Recommends Walk in Baths for the Elderly
Unfortunately, as we get older, daily routines can become more difficult and maintaining our independence can become more challenging. Cleanliness and hygiene is a basic fact of life for most, but as we get older, washing can become a major strain. Whereas bathrooms used to be something we took for granted, they can quickly become a place of risk.
When we find it difficult to stand up or maintain our balance, not only does the idea of standing in a shower become incredibly daunting, but if we do happen to fall, getting up becomes even harder, and this is a terrifying prospect when we have no one to look after us. Thankfully, we now have anti-slip bathrooms and walk-in showers/baths, making it easier for us to maintain our independence.
The great thing about walk-in baths for the elderly, is they make movement in and out of the bath easier. Mobility Plus walk-in baths are packed with safety features and have comfortable integral seats to make bathing an easy and relaxing pleasure again, meaning that we can simply walk in, sit down and clean, instead of struggling to get back out again.
One of the reasons I recommend Mobility Plus walk-in baths in particular is because their baths are manufactured to the highest standards, come in a variety of sizes and models to choose from, and they all come complete with an extensive product guarantee for your peace-of-mind.
Our Hampton Elite bath is one of the lowest entry walk-in baths available in the UK, making it a practical bath for those with limited mobility. It offers a stylish, modern design with low, easy-entry and a comfortable integral seat for comfort, safety and ease of mobility when getting in and out of the bath.
The Hampton Elite also features some great additional benefits, including the Chromo therapy light system which promotes balance and healing, and a luxury hydrotherapy spa system which is known to help you unwind, relax, aid arthritic discomfort and soothe away those aches and pains. The Hampton Elite by Mobility Plus is a user-friendly walk-in bath which offers relaxation and comfort.
Enjoy a long comfortable soak again.
