Design Options for Safety
The most dangerous part of the bathroom for a senior citizen is the bath tub. Modifications can be as simple as adding grab bars and a portable seat to complete replacement of the tub. Tub replacement will fall into one of 3 designs.
Walk-in Tub Installation
A walk-in bath tub is an option for those who want to bathe instead of shower but wish to eliminate the problem of stepping into a tub. Walk-in tubs can be placed in a relatively small area and a complete bath redesign may not even be necessary. Walk-in tub improve the safety for seniors and disabled persons with mobility concerns and enable folks all over the Delaware Valley to age in place.
Tub Removal and Shower Replacement
The team from Paramount will remove the tub and install a prefabricated shower in the same footprint where the tub was. Some shower models come with permanently attached seats and some have removable seats. With any shower we create we suggest adding a hand shower on a slide bar so that it is easily reached while seated. Of course 2- 3 grab bars are added.
Roll-In Showers are a convenience option for homeowners who use wheelchairs for mobility. For those homeowners who have ample space in the bathroom, we can create a curbless or roll-in shower with glass and tile that can accommodate a wheelchair.
These bathroom improvements will not only provide peace of mind for you and your loved ones, but in many cases they will also improve the value of your home.
