How to choose walk-in tubs in Tallahassee

skyline

For those with limited mobility or poor balance, daily activities such as bathing can become a source of fear, pain or struggle. The materials and low builds of traditional tubs create a risk of slipping and falling and make getting in or out of them one of the most dangerous activities in the home. The National Council on Aging reports that an older adult visits an emergency room for a fall-related injury every 11 seconds.

Walk-in tubs add accessibility and safety to an everyday routine. Both senior citizens and people with disabilities benefit tremendously from using them. These specialty tubs are crafted to have safe entry and exit thresholds, comfortable seating, a watertight door and built-in grips with non-slip floors.

Close to 10 percent of Tallahassee residents are over the age of 65, and another 8 percent of inhabitants have disabilities. Many seniors live in the city's northeast area, and neighborhoods in or near Woodland, Lafayette Oaks, Hidden Valley and Melody Hills have many retirement or assisted living communities. As the city pushes to entice more seniors into its borders, the number of retirees in Tallahassee is sure to continue growing.

How much do walk-in tubs cost in Tallahassee?

The more features a tub has, the more expensive it is. Basic models that allow only for soaking are the least expensive models, and tubs that have massage jets or other features come with a higher price tag.

Types and cost of walk-in tubs in Tallahassee

Type of tub Features/benefits Cost
Soaking tub The most basic models come with leak-proof doors, seats, anti-slip floors and grab bars $1,500 - $5,000
Aerotherapy tubs Air jets provide a light massage effect and therapeutic benefits $5,000 - $9,000
Hydrotherapy tubs Water jets add a more intense massage and whirlpool effect with therapeutic benefit $5,000 - $9,000
Combination tubs Use both water and air jets for therapeutic massage and a variety of customization options $7,000 - $10,000
Wheelchair-accessible tubs Come with wide entryways and a seat designed to allow people from wheelchair into tub comfortably $3,000 - $10,000
Bariatric tubs Wider tubs designed to be comfortable for larger people $5,000 - $10,000

Quoted prices for walk-in tubs in Tallahassee often include installation. Most tubs are designed to fit into the same space used by a traditional tub, so your bathroom shouldn’t require any significant renovations. It generally takes one to two days to install a walk-in tub.

Most companies guarantee their tubs to last 10 years, and some offer lifetime warranties.

Getting assistance paying for a walk-in tub in Tallahassee

Original Medicare generally does not cover the cost of a walk-in tub, but some long-term care insurances provide financial assistance if the tub is considered an absolute medical necessity. Tallahassee also has nonmedical assistance programs for the elderly that may provide financial help.

Programs that provide financial assistance for walk-in tubs in Tallahassee

If the final cost of the tub is still not within your price range, many companies offer financing options with no interest. Be sure to ask about any potential discounts, including ones for veterans or seniors.
