Bathroom safety is necessary to have as it is one of the more common rooms where accidents occur in the home. Exiting the shower or tub increases this risk because people have to step over a ledge onto a slippery surface. To provide more safety, purchasing one of the many walk in bath tubs on the market would be a good choice for your bathroom. These walk in bath tubs eliminate having to step over a wall as the door opens and closes so you can easily enter and exit. Walk in bath tubs are especially effective for the elderly. This age group is more prone to falling as reaction time slows among many other things as you get older. Having a walk in tub installed is a smart move for any house or nursing home looking to provide more safety in the bathroom.
