Bathroom Adaptations For Disability and Chronic Pain

Hey Cats,

Yesterday we were talking about breaking down barriers for older people in society and I thought it would be a good time to discuss mobility issues so many people young and old face daily. Some of you may know that recently my dad has been quite poorly. He has just come out of hospital and over the last few years his health has decreased a lot and he is now disabled so requires more support with some day to day tasks, One of the things that helps him maintain his independence is making adjustments to the home so he can still do a lot of things for himself. One of the most important changes is the bathroom the one place where everyone wants some privacy or time to relax a little. Premier Bathrooms have a great range if products for changing a bathroom to encourage more independence and mobility.





When I think of adjusted bathrooms I think of convenience rather than style but I when researching options with my Dad I was really pleased to find that this doesn't always have to be the case. Long gone are the days where you could only get white bars and a seat to help in and out of the bath there are so many more options available now and some of them are so stylish and slick most people wouldn't even realise your home had adaptions.Premier care can work with you to customise the style you want to suit both your decor and care needs. This also ranges from small adaptions such as a hand rail or lower sink to a complete bathroom redesign which will last a lifetime,


The biggest change to any bathroom is a bath or shower adaptation. There are a huge range of baths with walk in features some that allow you to stay seated while bathing and some that offer the option of both. Premier bathing have really took the time to research the needs of those with disability or mobility needs. There are baths with Jacuzzi options and chromotherapy technology to aid the ultimate in relaxation which is often a need to aid muscle stimulation. I had never heard of chromotherapy before it is the art of natural therapy using light waves to help enhance not only physical but also emotional well being. Baths can also feature hydrotherapy which is through the use of water jets adds more buoyancy to the water which can help ease chronic pain, The difference of having these facilities in home can help relieve some chronic pain and help to make it a little more manageable.


If baths aren't your thing there are also wet room and shower options, Showers can often be easier to manage for some people or even a preference. As my Dad can often have operations on his leg and has a lot of dressings sometimes showers are the easier option for his bathing needs. A walk in shower with seating is a must for him as he can not stand for long periods of time and recently he has just came out of hospital after an operation. Premier bathroom offers some really stylish but comfortable designs with options such as temperature control and lower level access. All tiling is carefully designed to ensure non slip to avoid accidents.


In all I was really impressed with the range and adaptions available from Premier Bathrooms. There is something for everyone and the addition of extra options to help aid care and relaxation shows a ot of thought and dedication goes into the designing process it is nice to see a manufacturer caring about the needs of those with disability and mobility issues. If anyone you know needs some adaptations point then in the direction of this caring company.

What do you think of these bathroom designs and adaptions?

  5. My mum hurt her ankle about 8 years ago and after numerous operations and years off work she has limited mobility in it so my parents opted to remove the bath as she couldn't get in and out easily and have a massive double walk in shower which is amazing x

  8. Great post, my mum has just come out of intensive care after having heart surgery followed by two heart attacks, and my dad is definitely elderly now and struggles. This is something that would certainly interest them both so I'll make sure to show it to them. x

  13. Such a great idea, why should making a few functional additions to bathrooms make them ugly? These are stylish and well thought out!

  19. These are amazing and so stylish! My nan had an adapted bathroom but it was so awful and clinical looking but this was years ago, I think she would have prefered one that looked like this x

  20. Both of my grandparents have had walk-in showers fitted in the last year, instead of their bath tubs. They're just brilliant - so much more practical for old knees!

  21. These bathrooms look amazing, it's great that the options are so much more stylish now. The showers look more practical, but the walk in baths look fantastic as well, you can't beat a long relaxing bath sometimes

  24. When I used to work in care, most of my clients who were home based had some of these but they cost a good fortune.

  25. I'd love to have a room big enough to turn it into a wetroom! Our apartment is only 2 years old, so the bathrooms are pretty modern anyway, but if I had a house I'd love to have an epic bathroom!
