( — August 13, 2013) Los Angeles, CA — As people age, completing simple tasks, such as taking a bath, become much more difficult. It takes a great deal of energy to step over the edge of a bathtub and it can be very painful for those with arthritis or other chronic conditions.


Traditional bathtubs often provide difficulties for senior citizens, especially when it comes to getting in and out of the tub. Many seniors end up needing assistance when taking a bath because of these concerns, which eliminates much of their independence.


For disabled seniors, the problem is even worse, since it is impossible to take a bath without having someone place them in the water.


Luckily, Independent Home Products has a wide variety of walk-in bathtubs that can take much of the strain off the user’s body. These tubs feature a door on the side, which provides an ease of access that other tubs simply do not.


The services provided by Independent Home work towards creating a safe and efficient environment for seniors to keep themselves clean. Once they have one of the company’s walk-in tubs installed in their homes, they will never have to worry about how they will deal with bath time again.


The tubs offered by Independent Home make it possible for users to slide into them, rather than having to lift themselves over the side of the tub. They also include a seat that is located 21″ from the ground, a 37.5″ wide door and a 7.5″ safety bar, which make the experience much more comfortable.


When the tub is installed, it fits perfectly into the space left by the old tub, so there is no need for extensive renovations. The door on the tub can be mounted on either the left or right side, depending on the room in which it is installed.


Seniors will also be happy to learn that the tub drains in less than a minute. This means that they will not have to wait very long to get out of the tub once they have finished bathing.


Installation only takes one day, as a tub installation technician will make sure that everything is installed the right way in no time at all.


As an added bonus, many of the walk-in tubs found at Independent Home come with water jet therapy, air jet therapy or a combination of the two. It all depends on the customer’s specifications, as there are a number of great tubs available.
