Oh the joys of youth! When you had no idea what arthritis, gout, bad knees, herniated discs, high blood pressure or heart trouble even was. Bath time comes you HOP in the shower and have a great time. You didn't worry about using too much shampoo or hot water or how many towels you get wet. The water on the floor afterward meant nothing to you.
Mama and Daddy would tell you to GET OUT OF THE SHOWER NOW!!. And you could do it with ease!
Alas. Fast forward several decades and my how things have changed. Now you can barely lift the first leg to get into that massive tub. You finally get it and you hang on to anything available, faucet, door handle, shelf, grab bar. You ease into the water, not know when or whether ever you will be able to stand up. For this reason, you put off taking a bath or shower as long as possible. You may even have someone there to help you in and out. Its part of life.
So, what can be done? You can't turn back the clock. Not getting clean is definitely not an option. I don't like other people being in the bathroom with me while I bathe. So, its time to make a change.
Tub to shower conversion time!! Lets remove the old tub and replace it with a nice new shower, one that you can step into with ease. You can customize it to your liking and have a seat, hand held shower head, and lots of room!
Don't keep putting it off. Tubs can be not only hard to navigate but actually dangerous to an older person
Call me!! Lets go over your options.
