In this article, thanks to Thermomat, we discover why one of the best solutions to protect our family is the bathtub with door, able to make people independent in the bathroom.
The bathtub with door is a valid aid in the bathroom, especially for our parents, that in some cases need more attention, and the possibility to move in spaces organized around their needs.
The Italian population is aging more and more: the decline in births and longer life expectancy are the basis of this reality.
Thus, we often find ourselves dealing with our aging parents who may need special and safe support.
Talking about the bathroom, the topic is even more felt: how to avoid domestic accidents? How to make elderly parents independent? What is the best choice to make?
Let’s proceed with order, to understand better which is the best solution.The shower in a bathroom used by elderly people is indicated only if our parents have a good autonomy: have a shower standing up if you are not completely autonomous can be a real problem.
The traditional bathtub, on the other hand, presents a problem: if elderly people have mobility problems, how can they climb over the edge to take a bath?
And here we are talking about the walk-in bath, with a door.
One of the best models of walk-in bath produced by Thermomat is the Amica model available for installation right or left, considering the type of bathroom in which you are going to install it, and the position of the bathtub.
The door of the tub, opening inwards, is very easy to use.
The walk-in bath is indicated for all those cases in which the person is not completely independent, or has joint problems of different nature.
One of the most important features of the walk-in bath is that the door closes hermetically thanks to a solid and robust closing system that prevents water from escaping.
The seat is comfortable and ergonomic, with the design of a real chair.
After having done a quick overview of the main features, we can conclude arguing that the choice of the installation of a shower, a bathtub or a walk-in bath in the bathroom for elderly parents is a choice that depends on the level of autonomy of the person which is going to use the bathroom.
