What a small world! No alias just my name for many many years.

Regarding the above entry. All depends on the individual's situation, payer source, family and staffing utilization and etc. This is where Home Modification Occupational Therapists can bring their expertise and collaborate with the project team.

This is good article about walk in tubs. After reading this, my 93 year old MIL decided she didn’t want it. While it might be okay for someone in their 60s/70s who are in relatively good health and are suffering from muscular or bone issues, it’s probably a bad idea for much older people who are suffering from heart issues that could result in passing out.

Houzzers—-how about a variation of something like this? Snitched this picture from somewhere, I think it was Houzz. We need a variation of this.
Think colorful inflatable kiddie pool....seam-free lines, bumpers, ease of use for the bather as well as
the end- of -bath cleaning. We have a great need as can be seen from these comments. We have catch up to do because no planning went into post-war homes, builders were not paying attention. Thanks to Houzz for bringing this whiteboard friendly messaging to us. Where else will users and PT's and designers meet....this is great.
