Before Or After A Surgery

Before or after a surgery

There are situations in life when even the simplest actions may be obstructed. Most of the surgical procedures are followed by a certain period of limited mobility for patients. In this case, one realizes that even the most basic steps of self-care are difficult to execute.

After surgery or hospitalization, it may become necessary to create a barrier-free bathroom.
This can be a time when we realise that our home is full of obstacles: stairs, bathtub with high sidewalls, an inappropriately placed bed, unsuitable or missing grab bars and slippery surfaces. These all make mobility and self-care even more difficult. If the intervention is predictable, you can pre-assess what problems will potentially arise when returning home, but in unexpected circumstances, we need to quickly consider how to make recovery time shorter and easier. Appropriate care must be taken before making our home more accessible before or after hospitalization.
During hospital visits before a medical procedure, medical staff rarely draw our attention to these problems and therefore a post-surgery recovery period at home may pose challenges.

Medical interventions can make it difficult to use the bath: e.g. hip or a knee replacement surgery, spinal surgery or even abdominal surgery may lead to limited mobility. Furthermore, all other musculoskeletal surgeries and other medical interventions may be a good reason to make your bathroom more accessible, since movement may become difficult or unstable.
In such a case, a bathroom reconstruction may provide a solution for several problems. Many people worry about the costs of such a procedure and the long conversion time.

 

You do not need to dismantle the bathroom, as in most cases a walk-in bathtub can be a great solution. The tub door is appropriate in almost every case and can be installed quickly and easily in every bathtub. The low entry-level provides safe accessibility both for patients and caregivers. You do not have to give up the pleasure of bathing because the waterproof door prevents leaks.
Our tub door, which is made of quality materials and manufactured with great expertise, provides a barrier-free bathroom, making self-care less challenging.

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.

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.

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.

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!
