For the elderly and disabled daily life can be difficult. Coping with the modern world and all of the obstacles that it throws up takes a lot of time and energy, something which can be in short supply.
However, there is one way that you can make life a little easier for yourself and that’s by installing some specially designed fixtures and fittings into your bathroom.
Just a few small alterations can transform the space, making it safe, easy and enjoyable to use.
Walk-in baths are ideal for those with poor or restricted mobility. These easy to use and easy to install fixtures allow the elderly and disabled to move in and out of the bath without the fear of slipping or falling.
You can make your bath time even more special by investing in an extra deep bath, allowing you to luxuriate in style and comfort.
Getting in and out of the shower is one of the most dangerous bathroom activities for people of all ages. In fact, around a third of all bathroom-related injuries occur in this area.
To make your shower safer and easier to use, you could invest in a walk in shower that’s flush to the ground. This means that you don’t need to step up or down to get in or out of the shower.
You could also look at installing a shower seat so that those with muscle weakness or stiffness can sit down during their shower.
Apart from providing great products, Premier Care in Bathing also offer a full design and installation service to its customers. This means that your entire bathroom can be specially designed around your needs, with all of your fixtures, fittings and furnishings built to suit you.
