Seniors Are Afraid to Bathe...

As We Get Older Our Needs Change. A Walk-In Tub Is Essential To Meet Those Needs.

More senior citizens are hurt in the bathroom getting in and out of bathtubs than I care to admit. Safety and convenience should ALWAYS be a factor when looking at a bathroom and bathroom remodel.

Unfortunately, many seniors in America (including Lyons, Arlington Heights, and Naperville) today are embarrassed to admit or even acknowledge that they have a fear of taking a shower. More often than not, they would rather ignore their fear, or worse yet believe that they are being childish.

But the reality is that few spouses, or even grown children, ever observe the gyrations and stress that many seniors experience as they quietly struggle to bathe in the privacy of their bathrooms. We ALL tend to ignore the problem until it is too late. The issue comes to be a glaring reality when a senior falls, is injured and then forced into assisted bathing… which is extraordinarily embarrassing, emasculating, and not to mention expensive.

I firmly believe that the right walk-in-tub offers Cook-county seniors the ability to practically remove this danger from the home and help improve their health.

Let’s take a realistic look at the impact traditional bathtubs have on seniors.

Reality 1

Your bathroom is the most dangerous room in your home! Currently, according to reports by the AARP and the CDC, 80% of all people in nursing homes are there due to complications from fall related injuries. Falls, sprains and scalds in traditional bathrooms, showers, and tubs account for the vast majority of these injuries. In fact, one in three adults aged 65 or older falls each year. By the time they reach 80, it becomes one in two.

As alarming as they are, these documented statistics fall short of the actual number since many incidents are unreported by seniors and unrecognized by family members or caregivers.

Data indicates that one of every three senior citizens in the United States (including areas like Arlington Heights and Naperville) will fall annually. Of that number, at least half will fall again within the same year. Eighty-seven percent of all fractures in people over the age of sixty-five years old are caused by a fall. Accidental falls account for at least twenty percent of injury related deaths in this age group… the bathroom is the room that accounts for the greatest number for falls in the home.

The problem, the high walls of traditional bathtubs are difficult for seniors to safely navigate. This becomes even more problematic as they attempt to exit. They are wet and so are the bathroom surfaces.

Many seniors in and around Lyons and Arlington Heights believe that switching over to a walk in shower is the solution... but they are wrong. The shower has many of the same inherent problems that traditional baths have. There is no place to sit unless the senior places an after-market seating appliance in the shower, the wet surfaces create many of the same slipping hazards and there is no added safety of a high side wall self-enclosed area that a senior can use to prevent falls and regain their balance.


Walk-in bathing appliances have high side walls and a low threshold door that permits seniors to enter the bath without needing to lift their feet more than a few inches. Appropriately placed ADA grab bars provide personalized stabilization throughout this process. Once in, the bather can lower onto a raised integral seat – AND RELAX!

There is no risk of slipping, falling, or trying to get up or down from floor level. Anti-scald valves, drains and accessories are within easy reach.

Reality 2

Every injury or illness can financially devastate a senior’s savings and financial stability. Healthcare costs are soaring. Many long-term care insurance companies -- even bigger companies in cities like Schaumburg -- are going under. With one of our customers, the seniors spent over $30,000 in uninsured medical expenses, and, $8,000 or more, each and every month, IN CASH, for the spouses now required nursing home care. Few Cook and Dupage county seniors can afford this.


Investing in preventative bathing safety products saves money and pays for itself. Even the most expensive walk-in remodel can cost far less than a nursing home stay. The investment in prevention and health is crucial to thriving in older age and preserving your cherished financial resources. Think of it this way, if a senior in Lyons is barely getting by financially… they cannot afford to NOT invest in bathroom safety!

As with most seniors, once an accident occurs, it is often too late. In this case a pennies prevention truly is worth a pound of cure.

Reality 3

Few seniors have sufficient access to healthy, non-aggressive, whole-body exercise in cities like Lyons, Arlington Heights, and Tinley Park, IL. Most diseases, like arthritis, diabetes, MS, joint problems, cancer and many others, are due to long term, low grade inflammations. Unresolved, these conditions worsen and can shorten life. Certainly, pain and discomfort become more problematic. As we age, we often don’t have any way to exercise, and stimulate our body to help cleanse the toxins and contaminants that lead to inflammation, pain and debilitating degenerative conditions.

Art Linkletter (currently 95) once said: “Some people are more afraid of being old than they are of dying…”


Hydrotherapy in a walk-in tub delivers sanitary, gentle whole-body massage, and can have truly life altering impact on a senior’s health, relaxation and sense of wellbeing. High quality walk-in bathtubs offer the option of hydrotherapy (not dangerous jetted “hot tubs”).

Every single client we have -- from Downers Grove to Tinley Park -- raves about the relaxation, pain reduction and invigorating benefits they receive from hydrotherapy. Many report they are even able to reduce expensive, harmful medications.

We MUST make bathrooms safer, and do our best to prevent injuries from ever happening. Once an injury occurs, it may be too late. Knowledge of bathing technologies, like walk-in tubs, can empower you to take control of your intention to live independently for as long as possible.

You cannot live independently until you have resolved bathing issues for the long-term.
