When designing a bathroom for the elderly, one of the things you should think of carefully is the selection of the bathtub. Some of you might have considered using a bathtub instead of a shower as you think that it will be a lot comfortable for the elderly to sit in the tub instead of standing under the shower. However, the type of the bathtubs itself also plays a role in determining whether the bathroom can be as safe as possible for them or not.

There are several different types of bathtubs from which you can choose the right one for you. However, for the elderly, only the walk in tubs can be the right type of tubs. This is the kind of tubs that does not require the elderly to jump into the tub when about to take a bath; the elderly can enter the tub through the door on the side of the tub. So, by using this kind of tubs, the elderly will be able to reduce the chance of getting slipped.
