Walk-in Tubs: A Smart Solution


In the old days, bathtubs came in one basic style, and they didn’t work very well for anyone with disabilities, knee problems, or even balance issues. Then easy access tubs made their way into the home renovation scene, and lives were transformed. Whether you’re aging in place or you’re just afraid of slipping and falling when exiting the tub, this design is a smart solution for you. Here are just a few of the benefits of easy entry bathtubs that you may not be aware of.

Improved Circulation
If someone you love has a disability that reduces their range of motion, then the tub can help improve their blood circulation. Immersion in warm water can open capillaries to bring in more oxygen and increase blood flow.

Better Sleep
People who are struggling to sleep often find that a warm bath can help soothe their rattled nerves so they can sleep better. If you find that it’s difficult to lower yourself into a traditional tub, then you’ve been missing out on this option, but that can change with the right appliance. Choose a tub that you can easily enter and exit on your own so that you can take a soothing bath when you want one.

Greater Independence
There’s no need to move into an assisted living facility just because you’re getting older or living with a handicap. With the right upgrades, you can remain in your own home and handle most of your daily care needs. If you’re focused on aging in place, then an easy access bathtub should be at the top of your list. You can use it on your own, or visiting home health aides can easily assist you with a bath.

Cost Effectiveness
When compared to the high cost of assisted living centers and nursing homes, walk-in bathtubs are the most cost-effective choice. They allow you to continue handling your own personal hygiene needs for a longer periods, and you’ll enjoy several great benefits now and in the coming years.

Before you decide to move out of your home, see how the right upgrades can allow you to age in place. Whether you’re disabled and want to enjoy the benefits of a warm bath or you’re just unable to stand for long periods of time in a shower anymore, this type of tub could be the answer you’ve been searching for.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
