A walk-in bath keeps seniors safe and independent at home

For older adults who want to stay safe and independent in their homes for as long as possible, a walk-in bath might be just what they need.

Whether they’re planning their home for their golden years or need a new accessible bathing solution immediately, a walk-in bath makes it possible for them to maintain their independence.

This type of bath is designed with a low door threshold to make entering and exiting the tub easier and safer.

Solutions like KOHLER® Walk-In Bath also offer specialty safety and comfort features that allow seniors to remain independent in their beloved homes.

Find out how your older adult can experience better soaks from the comfort of home with the 5 most important walk-in bath safety features.

 

5 top walk-in bath safety features for seniors

Kohler Walk-In Baths have a low step-in for safety

1. Low step-in
Walk-in baths are known for their low door threshold (step-in), which allows seniors to safely enter and exit the tub.

Since many older adults with limited mobility find it challenging to step into a standard bathtub, a walk-in bath offers a safer alternative.

The height of an average walk-in tub’s entry can range from 3 to 7 inches depending on the brand, but the safest option is often the lowest.

As a leader in accessible design, the KOHLER® Walk-In Bath offers an ultra-low 3” step-in, the lowest on the market today.

 

Kohler Walk-In Baths have a wide seat for comfort

2. Extra-wide seat
For many older adults, standing in the shower can be a strenuous activity and may increase the risk of slipping and falling.

Walk-in tubs allow users to sit and relax while they bathe.

Designed for the ideal reclining position, the extra-wide seat of the KOHLER® Walk-In Bath is up to 30% deeper than most walk-in tubs on the market.

The larger dimensions of the seat allow users to safely transition from a seated to standing position and remain comfortable during their entire soak.

 

Kohler Walk-In Baths have handrails and grab bars for safety

3. Handrail and grab bar
Handrails and grab bars create a safer bathing experience for walk-in bath users.

The KOHLER® Walk-In Bath features an indented handrail on the rim of the bath to provide stability as one enters and exits, along with a grab bar installed inside the bath to help seniors transition securely from standing to sitting.

 

Kohler Walk-In Baths have textured flooring for safety

4. Textured surfaces
Traditional bathing spaces can be hazardous for some.

Designed with textured flooring, the KOHLER® Walk-In Bath allows the user to step confidently into the bath, ensuring their footing is secure as they enter and exit and reducing the risk of losing their balance.

The extra grip of the floor’s surface also provides added support while in the bathing position, helping older adults feel safe and secure throughout their soak.

 

Kohler Walk-In Baths have an extra wide door for ease of use

5. Extra-wide door
The door of a walk-in bath should be wide enough for users with limited mobility to step through comfortably.

The door of the KOHLER® Walk-In Bath is specially designed to be larger and more accessible than other walk-in baths.

For added safety, our extra-wide door is built with an easy-to-turn handle that requires minimal pressure to close, creating a watertight seal to prevent hazardous puddles on the bathroom floor.
