Forty Fort, PA (PRWEB) June 30, 2012 - For many senior citizens, who have trouble stepping over the tub, keeping their balance or getting up from a seated position, the bathroom can be an especially hazardous room in their house. Organizations such as AARP, the Home Safety Council and the National Aging in Place Council continually publish articles about the dangers of falling in the bathroom. ReBath Northeast knows and understands that many seniors feel unsafe in their current bathrooms and they want seniors to know about all the different bathroom remodeling options that can be installed in their homes.
In a recent article on their website, AARP urged its readers to make their bathroom safer by installing grab bars and placing rubber mats. While this advice will help make the bathroom safer, some seniors need more than a quick fix. A tub to shower conversion, barrier-free shower, walk-in tub or seated base installed by ReBath Northeast will provide much more security and ensure more confidence than a grab bar or rubber mat that can be added in minutes.
Many people struggle to safely step over the tub because tubs are usually 15-18 inches deep. That can be a few inches taller than the average stair on a staircase. For many seniors, the easiest and most cost effective solution to this problem is to convert their bathtub into a new walk-in shower with a seated base. ReBath Northeast’s walk-in showers come with a low barrier that is much easier to stop over than a regular tub. The seated base allows people the sit if they feel uneasy about standing for the duration of their shower.
While many other companies and contractors provide this service, they do not offer the same benefits as ReBath Northeast. Over the past few years, ReBath Northeast has found that they install more tub to shower conversions in customers’ homes than any of type of remodel. Though some people choose to convert their tub to a shower for simple convenience, most customers feel that a walk-in shower is easier and safer.
Unlike other companies and local contractors, ReBath Northeast can convert a tub into a walk-in shower in only one day, leaving their customers with a shower they can use that night and no mess to clean up. The installers have all been professionally trained by ReBath LLC and have been specializing in bathroom renovations for over a decade.
Another advantage to hiring ReBath Northeast to install a walk-in shower is the lifetime warranty that they offer on their product. All of their shower bases and wall systems are made with ReBath’s patented DuraBath SSP acrylic. It is guaranteed to never fade, chip, crack or peel.
Another option ReBath Northeast offers for bathing safely and independently caters to seniors and the handicapped, who are wheelchair bound. ReBath Northeast can convert an old tub in a barrier-free shower that allows the person’s wheelchair to roll into the shower without any problems. Because the drain in this shower has to be sloped a particular way, the barrier-free shower is a little more complicated to install. Despite this, installation often takes only one day.
For seniors who really enjoy soaking in a warm bath but can’t get in and out of the tub, ReBath Northeast can install a SanSpa walk-in tub or a ReBath Select walk-in tub. Seniors will find the low threshold on the walk-in tub much easier and safer to step over. Both brands of walk-in tubs come with a contoured seat and are equipped for air or water jets. Walk-in tubs have therapeutic benefits for many physical ailments such as arthritis, back pain and rheumatism. ReBath Northeast can usually install a walk-in tub in one day.
To compliment all of their products designed to help customers bathe safely and independently, ReBath Northeast offers several safety accessories. ReBath Northeast recommends all customers have grab bars installed with their new ReBath system. Their professionals can help customers decided how many grab bars they may need and where to place them.
A hand-held shower diverter is another safety accessory that ReBath Northeast offers. Having a hand-held shower head allows the user the option to sit while bathing or move around easily without having to adjust the shower head.
ReBath Northeast wants potential customers to know that if they are in need of a safer way to bathe, several financing options are available. For more information regarding the safer bathroom products that ReBath Northeast offers, visit their website: rebathnortheast.com
