It can be very tough for the elderly to cleanse themselves daily in the bathtub without external aid or assistance. They also have to walk on slippery bathroom floors and then find a way to enter the high-edged tub. Furthermore, they have to lower themselves on the floor of the bathtub, which can be extremely stressful making them prone to accidents. This is where a Bath lift for elderly or disabled can be extremely useful. Drive Medical Limited, the parent company of AquaJoy Bath lifts is a leading manufacturer and distributor of high quality bathlifts.
