How to choose walk-in tubs in Nashville

Nashville Skyline

According to the U.S. Census, about 10.8 percent of Nashville’s population is over the age of 65, with many of the city’s senior population living in neighborhoods such as Belle Meade and Sylvan Park. The National Council on Aging states 1 in 4 senior citizens will experience a fall this year, and many of these falls will occur in the shower or attempting to get into the shower.

Those with elderly loved ones or individuals with mobility issues find walk-in tubs to be a beneficial addition to their Nashville homes. Walk-in tubs allow seniors to enter the bath or shower without the need for an additional step or strenuous action.

In addition to providing comfort and stability, walk-in tubs offer several features and add-ons, including:

  • Handles or grab bars
  • Bath seats
  • Massage jets
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Handheld showerhead
  • Textured floors
  • Anti-scald valves
  • Neck rests

When comparing walk-in tub designs and companies, consider the features your loved one will need in their bathroom and factor in the aging process. It is a wise investment to include features that may be necessary later in life, such as a handheld showerhead or hydrotherapy jets.

Costs and installation of walk-in tubs in Nashville

Walk-in tubs in Nashville range anywhere from $1,500 to $20,000 depending on the features you require and the model you select. When determining what type of tub to purchase, first decide on a reasonable budget. Your budget should include the price of the walk-in tub and any installation and hourly service fees required.

Although Medicare and similar programs will not cover the installation or purchase of a walk-in tub, your local senior citizen center or AARP may offer discount programs.

When talking with walk-in tub companies in Nashville, request an in-home consultation. This will allow the company you choose to provide an accurate quote based on the size of the bathroom and current plumbing system. Be sure to also ask about warranty packages for your walk-in tub. The warranty should cover any necessary scheduled maintenance, repairs or part replacements for a certain period of time.

Walk-in tubs should be professionally installed to ensure all features function properly and are in line with your loved ones’ mobility needs. Most walk-in tubs in Nashville are designed to fit in the space used for a traditional tub, meaning no building permit is required for installation. If your walk-in tub is larger and requires expanding your bathroom, you may need a permit. Your dealer can help you determine if one is necessary.
