Which one is better for older adults with mobility restrictions: a walk-in tub or a walk-in shower?
Walk-In Tubs, of course! Most of these products have hydrotherapy jets, which are very helpful for joint pain. Older people with mobility issues may benefit most from walk-in tubs.
During regular use, the entrance to the tub is just above the bathroom floor, eliminating the need to step over a high threshold. It lowers the likelihood of tripping and falling and the difficulty of balancing. You can also choose a tub with a fast-fill faucet, but it’s a bit pricey.
