Did you know that bathroom falls are one of the major causes of accidents among people with limited mobility? Getting in and out of a bathtub with high step over is often a dangerous situation for many seniors and can often make living at one’s own home difficult or nearly impossible.
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.
Traditionally the only answer was to rip out the bathtub and install a separate shower at significant expense, bother and mess. That’s why we’re so pleased to offer you two options. A Safeway Step conversion eliminates the high step over of your bathtub allowing you to safely enter and exit when showering. This is our most cost effective solution for a tub to shower conversion. Our trained professionals courteously and conveniently handle your installation so you’re free to use your new step-in shower the very next day.
Our expert installers will measure for your bathtub opening and cut out the required area. Then they’ll install your new step securely in place. If you would also like us to install grab bars we can normally do these services at the same time (at an additional charge.) Call us or fill out our estimate form to enjoy the pleasures of a Safeway Step-in shower in your home!
