Walk in bath
Age Care Bathrooms provide an excellent range of walk in baths. We know that after a long day, nothing beats a good soak. Our walk in baths are perfect and have a very low entry threshold with an inwards opening door. If you require a shallow bath to meet your needs then there is a range of different ones that can be installed. We can add assistance poles or grab rails to help you get in and out of the bath. Age Care Bathrooms will also install an anti slip floor in you bathroom to ease your mind and keep you safe. Also they will get rid of your old bath for you, so that you are free to use your new bath as soon as possible.
Whatever addition you need for your bathroom, we at Age Care Bathrooms can provide for you what you want. We have a range of different bath seats and also seats that can be lifted into the bath tub via a lift/hoist. Make sure to speak to one of our friendly team about what exactly you will need in your bathroom.
Bath lifts and hoists
A bath lift will gently lower you down into a bath tub. Your occupational therapist may suggest a bath lift/hoist to help you in and out of the bath, or you may have seen them for yourself and be interested in having one in your home. Again, there are a range of options available and we can help you pick which is best for you and tailor it around your budget.
Walk in showers (Wet rooms)
If your mobility is very restricted due to old age, or you are a wheelchair user, then a walk in shower for the elderly and disabled (also referred to as a wet room) may be more suited to you. With a walk in shower, there is no step or tray to walk over when entering the shower area, the floor is completely level meaning that entering and existing the shower is as easy as possible. When it comes down to designing your walk in shower or disabled wet room, you can pick between a range of doors and screens.
We have a great team at Age Care Bathrooms who will make sure the whole room becomes water tight, so there is no need to worry about any leaking. We also make sure the entire wet room floor will be covered in anti slip flooring. Wet rooms are also extremely easy to maintain and clean!
Shower seats and controls
When choosing a shower seat and controls you should consider safety and comfort. When designing your bathroom for the elderly you pick what suits you best. Shower seats come in a variety of shapes and sizes, fixed or not. We recommend to always make sure you take extra care when using a shower seat and to make sure you have handrails to help you get up and down. When choosing you control it’s important to think about what type of bath/shower you are using and will these controls be best suited to you or your loved ones.
