Walk-in Tubs Provide Easy Entrance

kohler rising wall bath
Independence is the key to aging in place comfortably in your home. One of the most important rooms is the bathroom. Showers and tubs are notorious for being slipping hazards and entry/exit can be difficult. Walk-in tubs provide easy entrance and are an excellent way to maintain safety and promote comfort. For example, Kohler’s Elevance Rising Wall Bath is easy to enter and exit. The chair height tub is the optimal height to move from a wheelchair into the bathtub. This ease of access also works well for people with joint problems. The light-weight side wall is easy to lift and dual leak-proof seals are backed by a life-time product warranty. Convenience features include an integrated footwell that lets you test the water temperature, easy to reach dual drains and extra options including a hand shower.
