The risk of a slip, trip, or fall with serious medical needs becomes greater as you age. It’s one of the biggest reasons that many senior citizens lose their independence. It’s so common that hospitals treat an average of 37.3 million fall-related injuries every year. If you’re looking for ways to prolong your independence and remain safer in your home, addressing common causes of falls is the best place to start.
The bathroom is one of the most likely places to experience a fall. Slippery tile and wet surfaces don’t pair well. Add to that, it’s easy to get disoriented, off-balance, or dizzy while in the shower. Making one easy change by updating your bathroom with a tub-to-shower conversion can add the safety and comfort that you or your loved one needs most.
Quick and Efficient Bathroom Conversions in as Little as One Day
If you think that replacing your tub with a safer alternative is a major renovation project, think again. You may be able to get that old tub torn out and a new, roll-in shower or walk-in tub installed in as little as one day with a professional bathroom conversion project.
Reputable companies like Bordner Home remodeling have created an efficient process that minimizes the disruption to your life. Getting a new, safer shower is as simple as tearing out the old tub own to the studs and replacing it with a new, prefabricated shower base and surround.
Accessibility Options with a Tub-to-Shower Conversion
The best thing about a custom remodel is that you can pick and choose the options that you need or want. For starters, new showers come in a variety of different threshold heights. The lowest of which is a roll-in shower that has less than a one-inch lip. Other models simply feature a low-barrier entry with a three or four-inch barrier that is easy to step over. Both options are significantly safer than liftin your leg over a traditional bathtub wall.
Plus, we can add a variety of other features to improve your safety:
- Grab Bars: Choose from different sizes, styles, and finishes of grab bars that are placed in convenient locations or offer all-around stability.
- Bench Seats: Take a comfortable, seated position in the shower.
- Hand Wands: Enjoy easy access to water from a comfortable seat with a detachable handheld shower feature.
