As many of us relish a relaxing bath, we would find it difficult were this pleasure to be taken away. As you get older, it might become more difficult to enter and get out of the bath-tub, or the bathroom itself might become less accessible. At Victoria Bathroom Reno’s, we understand the sort of difficulties that might arise with reduced mobility. As such, we have a range of accessibility products which are designed and selected to assist you. Our collection brings together all sorts of accessories that will enhance your bathroom experience and make every day easier.
Grab rails offer our customers a secure point on which to anchor their body weight when moving in or out of the bath. These rails have a textured service to give our clients extra grip, even when wet. As with all our services, these products can be installed in the home or within a commercial space, such as care homes. Horizontal grab rails are often combined with a bath board. Together, the user can use the rail whilst they sit on the board - before turning and raising their legs over the wall of the bath.
Bath and Shower Seats
Often, a single point of support won’t be enough. However, shower and bath seats serve to make our daily bathroom rituals much easier for those with reduced strength and mobility. Moreover, these are a great option for carers. A shower seat can make it easier to help with things like hair washing, whilst making the whole experience much more relaxing for the user. These seats are totally customisable; you could have one with a back or arm rest, and they come in different heights. We will be on hand to advise you as to the best choice.
Do you or someone that is dear to you struggle entering the bath? Bath boards are a great accessibility product, designed to be waterproof boards which fit across the top of your bath. It provides a secure area on which to sit, giving you some stability before using the bath sides as support to lower yourself into the bath or a lower bath seat. Some of the bath boards in our range are designed with hand grips, giving you that extra security. You can also pick a slatted option, which allows any water to drain into the bath rapidly. These boards are available in different lengths; we will ensure you have the right size to guarantee you maximum comfort.
Another fantastic mobility tool is the transfer bench. This is a four-legged seat which sits over the edges of your bathtub. You use these much in the same way as the bath board, by sitting on the bench and swinging your legs into the bath before lowering yourself. However, some people find this alternative suits them better, as it offers more support. Whatever the issue, Victoria Bathroom Reno’s will have the accessibility product to transform your bathroom experience.
