    1. Hi Barry, many of the walk-in tub companies carry specific bariatric tubs, make sure to specify what you are looking for when you call. Hope that helps, Amie
  3. Would a doctor recommendation help with a senior citizen whose prone to falls help with deferring cost with insurance coverage or Medicare partial payment?
    1. Hi Dana, It would really depend on your insurance benefits as to whether or not they offer coverage for walk-in tubs. I would recommend calling your insurance company directly to find out what is offered and their requirements for coverage. Best, Amie
    1. Hi- since Medicaid is a state-specific program and can vary in terms of what is covered, I would recommend connecting with your case manager to find out if walk-in tubs are covered by Medicaid in your state. Best, Amie

  6. Extremely informative article. All my questions answered and even gave me additional information I never thought about…I’m a disabled vet and wonder if the VA can assist. Thanks for educating me!!!
  7. I hurt my knee recently and would love to have one of these tubs. It is very dangerous to take a shower or bath for me right now.
  8. Great information. I’m glad i found your site. Thanks a lot. I plan on remodeling my bathroom soon.
  9. There is nothing more important than the safety of our parents and loved ones. Definitely a walk in tub brings that feeling of safety and Independence and can help the elder person to stay at home longer.
  10. Excellent information you’ve provided. This is definitely helpful to me. I am going to apply this in my upcoming bathroom projects. Thanks.
  11. Walk in baths can be really beneficial for people who need to alter their home for a loved one or even for a care home, needing new materials.
  12. Bathtub falls can cause fracture of Hips, elbows, ribs and other bones. There may have sprains, strains and head injury also. So, Walk-in Tubs [link removed-admin] is the safest option for older people. Slippery floor is another danger that needs to be cautious.
  13. We were redesigning our bathroom not so long ago and got rid of our traditional tub. We bought walk in tub and for now (2 years and counting) we can not be happier about that decision. I must say my daughters love it… even too much 😉
  14. It is actually a great and helpful piece of information. I’m glad that you just shared this useful information with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thank you for sharing.
  15. My grandfather just fell in his bathroom and ended up in the hospital for a few days. We’ll need to look into purchasing something like this for him. Since bathing is one of the primary reasons to get a caretaker, sometimes it’s worth the investment of $3000 for a walk-in tub instead of paying for a caretaker. We’re gonna have to look into it. Thanks for the info!
  16. Falls, sprains and scalds in traditional bathrooms account for the vast majority of these injuries. During the early 19th century, such baths were so heavy that the floor underneath required some reinforcement just to keep them from crashing right through. If you could change something, what would you change about the property.
    1. We are in need of a walk in tub, shower anything to help. I have tumors on my spine and had open heart surgery that has not healed. We have a high over step to get in the tub. We had Kohlers come out to assist in what was our options were. We have the money they are asking but, it seems that asking $21,000 for the elderly is like taking their retirement. They may be a great name but anyone, if you have a good brand please let us know. Are they ALL really that expensive?
