Benefits of a Barrier Free Shower

Those with mobility issues may have trouble getting in and out of the shower. A barrier free shower eliminates this problem so they can maintain their independence and avoid getting hurt. If you live in the Delaware Valley, P.J. Fitzpatrick can install a barrier free shower in your home to make bathing easier and more accessible for you and your loved ones. We specialize in shower upgrades, and we can even convert your existing tub into a walk-in shower.

Safety and Accessibility in Your Home

Barrier free showers have no edges. People with mobility issues often have trouble stepping over the edges of the bathtub, making it impossible for them to shower alone. Installing this type of shower gives them privacy and safety, and it eliminates the physical strain of getting in and out of a traditional tub. When you hire P.J. Fitzpatrick to install a walk-in shower in your home, you and your family will enjoy the following benefits:

Easy Access Barrier Free Shower Installation

There are no edges to step over, so those with restricted mobility can walk right into the tub. This lowers their risk of falling and reduces physical strain. Anyone can trip over the edges of a bathtub, even those with full mobility. When you have a walk-in shower installed in your bathroom, you make your home safer for everyone.

Customizable Safety Features

Grab bars and slip-resistant floors can be added to the shower upon installation to accommodate your needs. These extra features make it possible for those with limited mobility to shower with little or no assistance. Something as simple as a grab bar could prevent falls and save you thousands of dollars in medical bills.

Helpful for All Ages

Even if you get around just fine, you can enjoy the benefits and modern look of a barrier free shower. Walk-in showers are great if you have kids because they pose no drowning hazard, so they may be able to bathe themselves at an earlier age. Elderly members of your household can bathe without help getting in and out. This gives everyone in your home more independence and grants you more free time.

Increased Shower Space

This type of shower takes up less space than a traditional tub. You’ll be able to enjoy more space in your bathroom, upgrade to a bigger vanity, or build another storage closet. Your bathroom will feel lighter and more spacious when you upgrade to a barrier free shower.

Clean and Hygienic

Walk-in showers are easier to clean and more hygienic than traditional tubs. This type of shower has fewer seams where mold can build up. When you bathe in this type of shower, you can ensure you are getting clean in a sanitary space. Those with limited mobility can also easily clean and disinfect this type of shower.
