A Tub for my Friend

A friend of mine whose mom has been wheelchair bound for almost 30 years now has been in constant lookout for furnishings or equipment that will make her mom’s life easier. She is always looking for ways to make her daily activities like taking a bath, going to the toilet and others not burdensome and comfortable. One of the hardest activities for her is to take a bath. It would take about 10 minutes before she can be inside the bathroom which is really difficult for her since she is paralyzed. My friend saw these walk in tubs online and she was just as relieved because for a long time, she has been looking for one for her mother. She finds these tubs to be very convenient and innovative because she knows it will enable her mother to bathe without difficulty, comfortably and safely. With the features of a walk in tub, her mother will have the feel of independence without the aid of my friend while bathing. Her mother can just go directly into the tub’s special seat, fill the tub with water or can use the overhead shower; and my friend can do other stuff while her mother takes a bath, thus saving them precious time. I just hope that she will be able to buy that tub soon.
