Give the gift of safety and independence this holiday season

Finding the perfect, meaningful gift for your parents or beloved family member can be tricky – after all, they often already have everything they need. Why not come together with your siblings and cousins on a gift that will keep them healthy, safe and independent for longer, and add value to their home at the same time.

“Walk-in tubs are a necessary investment for many who are looking to remain at home as long as possible as they age, however they can be a difficult purchase for older adults. That’s why they can make a meaningful, if unconventional, gift from family members,” says Rick Perkins, owner of Walk-In Tubs Thompson Okanagan.

More B.C. seniors are making plans to remain in their homes well into their retirement years, but the steps needed to do so safely can often get left out of the conversation.

With one in four seniors falling every year, and most of those falls happening in the bathroom, a walk-in tub can help prevent many of those mishaps. Home safety upgrades like a walk-in tub, are vital in helping them age where they’re comfortable, as safely as possible.

“Getting in and out of the bath or shower is a huge source of anxiety for many seniors, especially those with mobility issues,” Perkins says. “For both seniors and their family members alike, installing a walk-in tub can make a big difference when it comes to safety and peace-of-mind.”
