The picture on the right here is a present solution that is unsafe for many.

A few years ago, my Mother was showing bruises but she claimed didn’t know what caused them. We learned she was falling trying to get in and out of the bathtub to use it’s shower. She refused to tell us fearing we would try to move her into an assisted living home. WE needed to take steps to reduce bathroom falls.

As a result, I started a company (SouthEast Michigan) that does Bathtub to Walk-In Shower Conversions, by cutting out the side of the existing bathtub. Our prices are 80% less than replacing the tub. Several of my clients tell stories of their children buying them a stool to help step over the side of the tub, only to be higher when they fell. Also, one told me she got in and could not get out – and she spent the night sleeping in the tub.

Our service is the lowest cost option for those who need a bathtub to walk-in conversion. We’re on Facebook at “Tub Transformations LLC” – Check us out.

Please talk to your parents about bathroom safety, and if they need assistance please do not buy them a stool… it actually can cause them more harm.

Ron,

Thank you so much for sharing this information with us. So many baby boomers are taking care of aging parents and then creating products or services that help others baby boomers. So many are going through the same thing. Your entrepreneurial spirit not only is a wonderful solution to a major problem, it is cost effective. Fall safety is so important. Falls in the home are the major reason for nursing home placement. Many aging seniors want to remain in their homes as they age. You make that possible. Thank you! Good luck on your new business.
