A Practical Family Bathroom without that Clinical Look or Feel

Bath time should be an enjoyable experience, however for some, getting in and out of the bath or shower can be a stressful and difficult experience without any help.

Our specialist range of easy access baths, showers and accessories take the worry out of bathing and create a safe yet beautiful bathroom environment for the whole family to enjoy, being both age and ability friendly.

Here at Trojan, we aim for our Bathe Easy collections to provide practical yet stylish easy access baths, showers and accessories, creating safe bathrooms that the whole family can use both now and in the future.

With an increase in the worlds ageing population, and with a total of 12 million people over the age of 65 now in the UK, these figures are on the increase and as home-owners age, their homes need to be fully equipped to match any additional requirements that might be required.

Arthritis - which literally means swelling of the joints - is a condition that impacts mobility, and one affecting a huge number of older people in the UK too.

Whilst arthritis often develops in people in their mid-40’s and older, it can occur at any age due to injury or other similar conditions. In the UK, reports suggest around 15,000 children and young people are affected by arthritis. Research has shown that soaking in a warm bath is a safe and inexpensive form of complementary therapy. When you warm up sore joints or muscles your blood vessels expand, allowing more blood and oxygen to reach the damaged areas, meaning muscles and joints relax more as circulation improves. 

A comfortable and safe bathroom and a place to relax and unwind at the end of a long day is something that everyone should have, and with research showing that having somewhere to escape can have huge benefits to our mental and physical wellbeing.

According to Carers UK, 5 million people in the UK are carers in addition to other employment and 1 million carers care for more than one person. It is no surprise then that given these figures, 8 out 10 people caring for loved ones reported feeling lonely or isolated, 72% said they had suffered from ill mental health and 61% from physical ill health as a result of caring.

Given these figures, this is something that really shouldn’t be ignored.

It is extremely important that carers have time to take care of themselves and acknowledge their own mental and physical well-being. At Trojan, we manufacture a range of products all with the aim of providing a relaxing haven for everyone. Our Bathe Easy collection provides the perfect solution if mobility is a key consideration; ideal for family homes that include a person who requires support, as well as their carer.
