As we age, our bodies become weaker and our mobility declines, making it harder for us to complete some everyday tasks. If you have an elderly loved one in your life that needs a little help getting around, you know that there are some tasks that are tougher to accomplish than others. Many times, the most challenging part of an elderly individual’s day is when they take a shower or bath. Using a shower or bath tub that isn’t designed for mobility can be a challenge – especially when there’s wet, slick flooring involved.
At P.J. Fitzpatrick, our bath solutions can give your loved one the stability they need in order to confidently bathe themselves. Whether you’re looking to replace an entire shower or bath unit or just need some extra accessories, we offer a variety of solutions.
Our walk-in showers are an alternative to regular bath tubs and are specifically designed to make getting in and out easy. Instead of having to step over the side of a bath tub, individuals can walk in and close the door or curtain. Our tub-to-shower conversions can eliminate the hassle of the tub altogether and instead, give individuals an easy-to-use shower.
We know safety is a concern when it comes to bathing, and that’s why we carry accessories like shower seats, tub seats, hand rails/safety bars, and handheld shower heads so that elderly individuals can be more confident during their bath or shower. We also offer slip-resistant flooring to reduce the risk of sliding and falling.
Our showers are custom-built, which means we can design a bath solution for a bathroom of any shape or size. We can also include as many or as little safety accessories as you’d like to make your tub or shower perfect for a mobility-challenged individual. If you’re interested in transforming your or someone else’s bathroom, give us a call today to get started.
