Taking a relaxing bath is one of the best things you can do to unwind. It’s also something that can be a real challenge for those with mobility issues. There are a few things you can do to make your life easier and make bathing, a lot more enjoyable and most importantly, comfortable. Let’s run through a few of these things.
Walk-in baths allow people to have much more dignity and a greater sense of control over their surroundings. Bespoke Bathing provides you with a range of walk-in baths and easy-access bath designs to choose from. You can have a safe and relaxing bath with hydrotherapy, comfort seats, back rests and/or install a stand-up shower area and convert your bath to a shower tub. All our baths are created in the UK, are equipped with low-level easy access and non-slip seating and standing areas.
Ensure your taps/showers and TMV rated, this helps control the temperature of the water and prevents scolds and burns. The optimum bath is right around 110 to 112 degrees. A bath that is too hot can irritate your skin, which can cause inflammation, redness, and dryness, and can in cases make you feel slightly faint. TMV stands for thermostatic mixer valve, a fitting that’s installed to control the temperature of the water coming from a tap or showerhead, Bespoke Bathing always install TMV rated controls.
Create a truly spa-like experience by bringing some beautiful plants inside the bathroom. A popular bathroom plant is eucalyptus as it creates a beautiful minty, citrus fragrance in the steam. Other plants that like humidity include peace lilies, Spanish moss, and succulents.
There is nothing quite like the pleasure of enjoying a long soak in a hot, soothing bath. Unfortunately, this simple pleasure can be beyond the reach of people living with disabilities or mobility issues. Bespoke Bathing can help you reclaim your independence.
