Aging in your home
June 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are in the design process of our "retirement home".
Need advice on what kind of tub is more user friendly for older folks.

Free standing or a undermount tub with a surround.

Thank you,

The nice thing about an under mount or drop in with an surround is that you can sit and swing your legs in and ease yourself into the tub. I do a lot of work with people who are doing just what you are and they seem to feel that this works well.

Good luck as you move into this exciting new phase of your lives.

There are bathtubs that has a swing out door which acts as a stand up shower as well

Thank you for your comments. I will check out the ageinplace website. I too thought that the a surround that I could sit on would work well.
