Walk-in tubs, Good or Bad?

Walk-in tub

Pros of a walk-in tub.

  • Slip and falls may happen when entering and exiting a traditional tub.  A walk-in tub has a door that opens and closes that will help reduce falls.

 

Cons

  • Waiting inside the tub to fill and empty
  • Very Expensive
  • Hard to resale a home with an existing walk-in tub
  • Might need to update electrical and maybe a hot water tank upgrade

Aging in place, Stay in your own home longer.
