Bathtime is generally a fun and enjoyable experience for children and there are many benefits for children with disabilities. The warm water can soothe and relax the child and can give relief to joint pain or stiffness. Bathing children with a disability, physical impairment, mental illness, or sensory impairment can also raise anxieties for both parent and child and a secure environment whilst in the water will ease this tension.
Needs can change as the child develops
As the child grows, they become heavier and harder to handle. Lifting the child can put a strain on the back and becomes too much, sometimes causing prolonged damage. The right equipment can make all the difference to bath time and help to secure this as the best part of the child’s day.
A specialist disability bathing solution will increase safety for both child and parent, can be scaled as the child grows and will vary depending on the need and budget. Bath lifts, rise & recline bath system and a height adjustable bath are considerations if your space is adaptable and thinking long term investment.
Bathing comfort for children and young adults
For an immediate resolution, a bath support will give security for the user and comfort for the parent/carer. Safe bathing is critical and it’s vital that the support can withstand any sudden movements from the user and stay solid to prevent any possible trauma.
