Wet rooms for the elderly and wheelchair users
A quality and watertight wet room installation is a great option to provide a luxury space in your home as well as overcoming any mobility issues. With no shower step in tray to overcome, wheelchair users and those looking for an easy access solution, a wet room could be the solution to a practical bathroom space for an elderly user. As wet room specialists, we can help kit out your home with a wonderful space to enjoy.
Walk in showers
Easy access showers and baths are vital when care needs to be taken getting washed and ready, and we appreciate that everyone loves a refreshing shower so the experience should not be compromised. We regularly fit walk-in showers for the elderly that are simple to gain access to, as well as walk-in baths. The bathroom should be a serene space to escape at any time of day, and so our easy access bath and shower installations can be a real game changer for those who have mobility issues. The shower controls we can install in a walk in shower for an elderly relative are also super simple to use and when required can be paired up with grab rails.
How do easy access baths work?
For some of the elderly population, getting in the bath can be a hazardous task, trying to keep balance and not slip. There is a huge market of walk-in baths to choose from so that you can still enjoy the relaxation of a hot bath to unwind.
Walk in baths feature a wide opening door to make stepping into the bath both safe and simple. You then proceed to fill the bath using your temperature controlled taps ahead of well-deserved de-stress. Once you have finished it’s a case of draining the water and an easy step out of the bath to get dry.
Shower stools and bath seats for elderly users
Additional equipment can be installed in the bathroom to make the experience more enjoyable and one of the simplest solutions that can make a big difference is seating. We can supply sturdy shower stools to make washing a much easier experience and so you can take the weight off your feet as and when you need and make use of sitting down when cleaning too.
Positioned carefully in various locations around the bathroom, grab rails can massively reduce the risk of a fall. Placed next to the toilet, these can be folded away when not in use to free up space and should you need them around a bath or shower, they can provide that extra assistance and reassurance.
Adapted toilets and toilet aids for the elderly
Toilets which are slightly higher than standard ones can make a big difference with less bending required when sitting down and standing up. Alongside grab rails they provide a simple and practical solution to ensure independence is maximised for years to come.
Non slip bathroom floors
Selecting non-slip flooring for the bathroom is a key decision when creating a safer bathroom space for the elderly. Available in a huge range of styles, we can help find and fit tiles that finish off the look of the bathroom and ensure that wet floors are not hazardous.
Clean & easy
Scrubbing the bathroom isn’t exactly everyone’s idea of fun, so the easier it is to get the sink sparkling and the bath back to beautiful, the better.
