Elderly And Senior Mobility Problems

Elderly and senior mobility problems

After 60 our body becomes more vulnerable and we require even more attention and care. Our mobility slows down, walking becomes more difficult and recovery may take a long time after an accident. Bones break more easily and they need more time to heal and falls become even riskier for elderly people, increasing the severity of a potential injury. If we are lucky enough, it might only be a few scratches, but unfortunately, there is a risk of serious injury as well.

The bathroom poses a risk to many elderly people or those with a limited range of motion. Since it becomes more difficult to enter the bathtub by climbing over the high wall, the danger of slipping is increasingly present. Getting into and out of the bathtub often requires assistance and this means losing the ability and empowerment for self-care, which may have a huge psychological effect; potentially leading to depression.

With limited mobility, you might want to think preventively, prepare for the future and develop a safe and comfortable living environment. Self-care is a basic need and it should not be neglected, as it may not only reduce comfort levels but can also cause other diseases.
The bathroom – due to its size – usually consists of a very small space, which can compromise its safe use.
Experience shows that limited mobility poses a risk in itself, which is even more enhanced by the small area and the slippery surfaces.
Crossing the high sidewall of the bath may increase the risk of falls and major accidents. Therefore, it is vital to find a solution to make the bathroom safer.

Bathtub door

If you want to avoid a messy and expensive conversion, you will find our tub door an ideal solution. With only a minimal amount of work, we can lower the entry height and provide a perfectly waterproof door which ensures safe and comfortable bathing.
The walk-in bathtub makes it safe and easy for you to get into and out of the bathtub, so you will not have to give up the pleasure of a soothing bath, even with mobility challenges.
By installing the tub door, you can continue to enjoy safe bathing and self-care. We provide you with a fully accessible bathtub.

In our new build apartment we were stuck with a bathtub as it was already fitted to allow a change to accommodate the need for my 97 yr old mother. Alternatives required removing bathtub and replace it with a shower tray or a walk in bathtub. Both expensive options and risking voiding builder's warranty. Then I came upon the U-Door option and I must say it has worked out very well at a relatively less outrageous price. They have been proficient in follow up, their engineer seems very professional and finished the job without any fuss.

We had a udoor fitted in our bath. We were very pleased with the service provided the tradesman who fitted the door was very pleasant and professional we have used it for while now and very pleased with it my wife has been able to shower with no problems.

First rate product & First rate service. For a person with mobility issues like myself it makes being able to shower easy again. Two options completely remodel the bathroom or fit a UDoor. No contest. Quality, Cost and speed of installation Would recommend to anyone.

Louis came last week and fitted our bathtub door He worked very effectively and left no mess. He was very friendly and polite and ran through the necessary forms explaining everything very clearly. He also demonstrated the workings of the door before input. I have to say it looks amazing and is brilliant in its effectiveness. I'm really pleased with it and it already makes my life so much easier. The company itself appears to be very professional and kept me updated on when they would attend and even rang me to see if I would like an earlier installation date following a cancellation as they were aware of my surgery date. Very impressed overall and would highly recommend. Many thanks

A brilliant solution to mobility problems with bathing! Having a Udoor in my bath has given me easy access but kept all the usual shower/bath options for other users. The family firm was easy to contact, pleasant, friendly and efficient and Joseph who did the installation was courteous, kind and very professional. Much more affordable than replacing the bath with a shower, too. I would recommend this solution to mobility issues to anyone- it’s brilliant!

This was a remarkable experience. Firstly, Fay was able to arrange the UDOOR installation on an exact date and kept me up to date on procedure. Secondly, Louis arrived on a chosen time and began work immediately and swiftly. I admired his application and the meticulous attention he gave to every aspect of the door installation and the care he gave to “ no mess, no fuss “ method of working. He is a very diligent and talented engineer. Thirdly, Iam extremely satisfied with the door and thank you on behalf of my wife, to whom the UDOOR will be a boon. Ken Duckworth. Rugby.

No Fear Bath Time My wife Susan had polio when she was a child and has a couple of tumbles getting in and out of the bath. Our experience of dealing with UDoor was first class. Fay was the point of contact and was great to deal with. Louis came to assess the bath and then came a couple of weeks later to fit the UDoor. We've been using the bath a few weeks now and Susan can face taking a bath without the fear of falling. Thanks UDoor.

Anne 09/04/19

The door is really high quality and the man who came and fitted it was really lovely. From start to finish they have been so friendly and professional. I still can't believe that it only took a few hours to do and now I won't ever get trapped in my bath again.

Carole 05/04/19

First class service and first class product, everyone I dealt with was helpful professional and made choosing this company easy. Would definitely recommend choosing them if you are having problems with that big step over the bath.

My Mother is delighted with her U-door installation. It has transformed her bathing experience and increased her independence, at a fraction of the cost of a new bathroom. The technician was polite, helpful and entirely professional, leaving absolutely no mess or cleaning up to do afterwards. Thank you U-door!
