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.

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO...
