Walk in Baths & Lifts

Climbing in and out of a bath is one of the actions that many elderly or less able people find particularly hard.

If you don’t like the idea of replacing your bath with a level access shower, the alternatives are either a walk-in bath or a bath lift. There are a wide range of both baths and lifts to suit all needs and we will be happy to advise according to your needs.

For advice on the best bath lift or walk-in bathing option for you, simply call us on 01271 374600 or visit our showroom in Barnstaple.

The Bellavita Bath lift is one of the lowest bathlifts on the market with a record seat height of just 6 cm. It is also one of the lightest bath lifts and has a reclining back rest. Retailing at just £399, it is an ideal first option to maintaining bathing independence.
