Bathing Independently

Print Friendly

In later life, day to day tasks such as getting up and down the stairs or bathing can become quite daunting and stressful.

Having family and friends on hand for daily support is great, but at times where access to this support is not possible, there are products and services available to offer safety and comfort to help create a risk free environment. Safety features in the home also gives peace of mind to friends and relatives, as well as offering you your own independence.

When moving around the home there is always the risk of trips and falls, but you can take measures to prevent the likelihood of such things happening. Simple measures such as ensuring that carpets and rugs are firmly flat on the floor and secure, having carpets instead of laminate, ensuring that your home is free from clutter and properly lit. You can also invest in mobility products such as handrails which can be a great help in certain parts of the house, particularly the bathroom.

The bathroom is very much an area of your home where accidents are prone. It is slippy, surfaces are solid and your mobility is pushed to its limit. There is a solution offered by Mobility Plus to make your life at home easier and safer in the bathroom.

Mobility Plus offer safe and easy access bathrooms, specially designed with ease of mobility in mind. With a practical range of walk in showers and walk in baths that incorporate safety features such and hand rails, shower seats, level access entry and wide opening doors, a mobility bathroom allows you to keep your bathing independence and even enjoy a nice and warm relaxing bath.

Mobility Plus also offer products that are said to soothe the aches and pains associated with arthritis. The Hampton and Independence Elite range offer a chromotherapy feature, which is also known as colour therapy. It is believed that the seven colours of the rainbow are infused with healing energies to promote balance and healing. A lamp source incorporated in your bath that generates all of the seven colours of the spectrum is said to promote well-being and relaxation.

There are many benefits to investing in a mobility bathroom but the safety features are invaluable and will offer that much needed comfort and peace of mind for both yourself and your loved ones when living alone.
