Caregivers: Are you looking for Safe, Accessible Bathing Solutions for your Client?

accessible bathing solutions for caregivers

With the strategy of reducing the incidence of falls, and enabling individuals to remain independent in their home or place of residence; American Standard and The Walkin Tub Company works with Health Professionals in providing personalized services to you and your clients.

 

HomeCare Bathing Solutions

With the shift in healthcare towards home care, we know that this means that there is a greater reliance on an individual’s home, their environment, and their care team.  Helping our clients to prepare now, helps them regain their independence and greater confidence and control over their quality of life and dignity, and prevents terrible falls.

 

As a preferred vendor with various Community & Retirement Living Projects across Canada, we are committed in ensuring that our Canadian citizens have the safest bathing solutions possible.  By using the best quality American Standard products on the market, and offering personalized service with our Mobile Showroom, Certified Aging in Place Specialists, and professional installations, we are able to accommodate our clients’ needs, and the ability to provide professional services on behalf of our Healthcare Partners.

 

When accidents and injuries do occur, often, patients cannot be discharged until there are accessible housing and bathing options.  Outward opening walk-in bathtubs are the best solution because they are fully accessible by slide-in/slide-out, not having to step up or around an inward-opening door.  American Standard outward-opening tubs also accommodate portable hydraulic patient lifts, reducing the strain on caregivers.

 

A door will always be the safest option to bathing and showering.  Utilizing the hydrotherapy aspect of these tubs promotes healing through circulation of blood flow and tissue oxygenation; reduced compression on joints and muscles in Arthritis and Fibromyalgia sufferers; controlled plasma sugar levels in Diabetes patients; and targeted pain relief for those in injury recovery, or with leg, back & sciatica pain.

 

Dignified Bathing

American Standard Walk-in Bathtubs are fitted with an InLine Heater, and their patented QuickDrain® will remove all bath water in less than 2 minutes.  Many view bathing/showering as a daily task, however we know that many also go without bathing at all because there is no accessibility, even in a roll-in shower area or where a seated shower is present.  Using an American Standard Walk-in Bathtub means dignified bathing, and it’s preferred by caregivers.

 

Healthier Caregivers

It is reported that the instance of back-related injury claims sustained by Personal Support Workers in Community & Assisted Living have decreased since installing American Standard’s Outward Opening bathtubs.  The seat height and overall operational features of the tub provides relief and assistance to the caregiver as well as the bather.

 

The outward-opening tub becomes a necessity as age and mobility needs become challenges.  Let American Standard Walk-in Tubs provide the assistance to you and your clients, where other companies and products cannot.
