My husband (85) has Lewy Body Dementia, which has some of the physical characteristics of Parkinsons. The last time he got into the tub the getting in was fine, but getting him out was a whole different kettle of fish! I'm sure a video of that event would be funny, but it didn't seem so laughable at the time. Fortunately we have a 3/4 bath with a shower not in a tub, and that is what he has been using. But he has missed taking baths. Last week we had a walk-in tub installed, and this weekend was our trial runs (with plastic drip clothes still covering the newly grouted tile.) I think it is going to be a hit!
Does anyone else use a walk-in tub? Any tips and advice for newbies?
