Each day, people throughout Genoa consider whether they're able to maintain their independence at home. In our experience, introducing modifications is a dependable way to grow old in your home while remaining free from safety worries. At Artex Walk-in Tubs, we install walk-in tubs with showers throughout Genoa. If you're still considering whether installing one is right for you, we're here to share our favorite reasons for doing so.

You'll reduce your falls risk

The top reason for installing a walk-in tub with a shower is to reduce your falls risk. Many of our customers worry about slipping on their usual shower surface or falling as they get out of their tub. Our walk-in tubs overcome these problems in several ways:

• You can walk into the tub before filling it with water and relax on a seat. As a result, you're not going to slip on a surface that's already wet.

• We use anti-slip materials throughout all our products, so you can walk out safely.

• Being able to walk out of your tub means there are none of the awkward movements associated with raising yourself out of a bath.

You enjoy hydrotherapy for pain management

When you suffer from mobility problems, replacing your bath with a shower may feel like the best solution. Unfortunately, when you say goodbye to your bath you're also saying goodbye to a healthy form of pain management.

Our walk-in tubs with showers are spacious enough for you to submerge yourself in. As the weight of the water eases the burden of gravity on your joints, you'll feel less pain. By choosing one of our larger models, you can also give yourself enough room to engage in joint exercises. You may find this particularly useful if you've been prescribed a range of exercises after surgery. If maintaining your independence despite joint pain is something you care about, a walk-in tub with a shower is right for you.

Hair washing is easier

When choosing walk-in tubs, you may wonder how you'll meet your everyday hygiene needs. Focusing on a walk-in tub with a shower makes it easier for you to wash your hair.

Although it's possible to wash your hair in a tub without a shower, it's likely to accumulate grease sooner and may not be fully clean. As a result, you may not be able to go as long between washes. Additionally, washing your hair in a tub can feel exhausting, especially if you need to lift jugs of water out to rinse it. By using a walk-in tub with a shower, you can wash your hair the usual way and enjoy excellent results.

You can accommodate your guests

Even if a walk-in tub isn't a necessity for yourself, you may need it for someone else. As your relatives get older, adding accommodating features to your property makes it easier for them to come and visit.

Similarly, if you're aware that someone you care about is struggling with their mobility, making adaptations to your home makes them feel welcome. Whether it's a parent, grandparent, or friend, when you modify your property you provide them with a place of respite.

Finally, this is also a modification you can choose to add to an elderly relative's home. If they would rather remain in their own property than go and live in a retirement community, a walk-in tub with a shower gives them the power to do so.
