Just How Important Is Aging In Place?

At Transitions Remodeling, we pride ourselves on home safety. If you or a loved one has any inclination whatsoever to remain in the home long-term, than aging in place is of vital importance. And no single item of aging in place is more important than the issue of bathing.

Data clearly indicates that one of every three senior citizens in the United States will fall annually.

As alarming as they are, these documented statistics fall short of the actual number since many incidents are unreported by seniors and unrecognized by family members or caregivers.

Out of those numbers, at least half will fall again within the same year. Eighty-seven percent of all fractures in people over the age of sixty-five years old are caused by a fall. Accidental falls account for at least twenty percent of injury related deaths in this age group… the bathroom is the room that accounts for the greatest number for falls in the home (source).

We MUST make bathrooms safer, and do our best to prevent injuries from ever happening.

Once an injury occurs, it may be too late. Knowledge of bathing technologies, like walk-in tubs, can empower you to take control of your intention to live independently for as long as possible.

A Senior cannot live independently until They have resolved bathing issues for the long-term.
