Aging in Place

Did you know that a Home Safety Council survey revealed that homeowners consider the bathroom the second most dangerous room in the house?  As builders, one of the major areas that Dakota Walk-In Tubs is asked to tackle is making the bathroom a safe place for seniors who are beginning to have mobility issues.

A term or concept that is becoming more and more popular these days is "aging in place" - being able to stay in one's homes as one grows older. Most likely the aging of a large group of baby boomers has a lot to do with this . More and more people are concerned about their ability to live comfortably in their homes as they age. In fact, even while they are physically able to maneuver well in their bathrooms and handle their stairs efficiently, they are beginning to plan ahead for days when they may not be able to do so.

In our search for a solution to this problem, we discovered a company, Best Bath, which has been focused on this issue since the early 1970's. We are especially pleased to be a dealer for their company and work with their quality products... especially their barrier-free showers.

Bliss is another outstanding company which produces safe bathroom products.  Their walk-in tubs are extremely well made here in the United States and come in many sizes to fit in any bathroom.

Both these companies have spent many years creating products which promote safety in the bathroom. Their  products alleviate many of the problems where safety and accessibility are a concern, thus giving people a better chance to age safely and comfortably in their homes.
