Time to replace the old bathtub
We are in our mid-70s and need to convert a bathroom with a tub into a shower with handicap grab bars and seat. My wife is handicapped and it is very difficult to get in and out of the tub.
Both of us have fallen in the tub and it is very dangerous. We are on a fixed income with no extra money to fund such a project. We would greatly appreciate any help.

Safety concerns are a very common issue with our homeowners. Many people want to stay in the homes they love, but need to make accommodations in order to do so safely. The current bath tub is not easy to step over safely, and some tubs are rather slippery when they are wet. We would address the bathtub by replacing it with a shower base with a low threshold entry, which will be easy to step over to get in and out.
• Bath Planet would suggest a walk-in shower base with a low threshold, making it safe and easy to step in or out of the shower. Our bases are made of durable acrylic, and are safe and easy to clean and maintain.
• We would also install one of our matching acrylic wall surrounds, and a corner seat to allow for a safe place to sit while showering, avoiding unnecessary falls.
