JT Spas, who offer affordable bathroom products to bring life to a bathroom has said more elderly people can stay in their home instead of going into expensive residential care. The company which supplies affordable, quality, luxury walk-in baths has said more people are now choosing to stay in their home instead of moving to residential care homes.
According to official figures, a residential care home can cost £27,000 to £39,000 per annum and if a person requires nursing care that can increase to £55,000. In 2019 there were 20,000 people in care homes in Wales and more than 500,000 in the UK. It was also reported that in 2019 40,000 people were forced to sell their homes to pay towards their care. However, JT Spas has said that more people can stay in their homes by making alterations.
Alterations that can be made to the home to make it safe for elderly people and help avoid going into a care home include stairlifts, high-rising chairs, and walk-in baths. A walk-in bath can help an elderly person care for themselves and it can help those looking after elderly parents.
A spokesman for JT Spas said: “We have a lot of customers who purchase our walk-in baths so they can stay living in their own home. Having to sell the family home to pay for care can be distressing, but with all the products available, it is much easier to have care in the home.”
JT Spas have a large range of walk-in baths that will suit all budgets and most spaces within the bathroom. To learn more about the walk-in baths available from JT Spas, please visit https://www.jtspas.co.uk/walk-in-baths-1866-c.asp
