Have you ever had to step into a bathtub and either almost slipped with one foot in or barely been able to get your leg over the side? Well, you aren’t alone. Bathroom falls are one of the most common causes of accidents at home, especially for those who have limited mobility. According to a recent study by the Council of Aging, more than 250,000 accidents occur each year to Americans aged 60 years or older in and around the bathtub area. Two thirds of adults that fall in the bathtub area will fall again within a six-month period. This can be a very scary situation for a senior citizen who is living at home by themselves. Don’t worry though, there is a cost effective resolution!
Normally, many would turn to an entire tub/bathroom renovation. Well, converting your bath to a shower can be a tireless and messy process. So what is a good, cost-effective, time-saving answer to this safety concern? America Bathtub & Tile Refinishing offers a great rebuttal.
