BATHROOM ADAPTATIONS FOR SAFER INDEPENDENT LIVING
Prevent slipping with a walk-in bath, walk-in shower or wet room
More and more people are opting for an adapted bathroom to make showering and bathing a more comfortable and safe experience again. Having a walk-in bath, walk-in shower or wet room installed in your house is one of the top adaptations that people make to help prevent accidents. Did you know that 4,600 people aged 55 or older visit the Emergency Department every year after a fall in the bathroom? (Source: Consumer and Safety Foundation).
In designing and installing your bathroom space we bring together the advice of experienced occupational therapists, the latest in product design and local experienced contracts as well as the options for funding the adaption of your bathroom. The benefits include of having you bathroom adapted include:
- Safe and comfortable bathing or showering
- Prevention of slipping due to the low entry and anti-slip flooring
- No stressful renovation
- FREE no obligation design service
BATHROOM ADAPTIONS COST AND SUPPORTS
Bathroom adaptations can come in different forms and styles, for example you can have a walk in shower installed instead of a bath tub or you can have your shower replaced with a walk in bath tub. Each case is different. From our experience the average cost of having a bathroom adapted in Ireland for senior living ranges from €2000 to €7,000 depending on the specification and location of the existing bathroom.
Bathroom Grants for the elderly
As a bathroom adaptation is covered by the housing aid for older people grant scheme, you may be entitled to a grant to help cover some of the cost of the adaptation. The grant scheme is not ideal for people who need to have the adaptation done quickly as it is oversubscribed and subject to delays in some areas of over 1 year.
You can check your eligibility for a grant on our mobility aids grant calculator or call our advisors for consultation: 1800 22 33 11 (toll-free number).
