FACT: 80% of all injuries for seniors occur in the bathroom!
The bathroom is considered to be the most important space when it comes to accessibility. It only makes sense. The bathroom is full of hazards: slippery floors, tight spaces, and hard surfaces. According to the CDC, about 235,000 adults visit the emergency room due to injuries suffered in the bathroom every year! And 68% of these injuries were in the bathtub or the shower.
Most consumers do not want to move to a new home – they want to improve the home they already have.
More than 90% of those planning a home improvement are doing so with the intent of staying in their home longer.
If you have reached the age when climbing into a traditional bathtub is no longer safe, or if you are facing a physical limitation – it’s time to make safe bathing changes. When changes are needed, don’t hold back out of fear it will look like a “hospital” or affect the resale value of your home. That is no longer the case with our Barrier Free and Low Curb Showers. They are made for remodeling and add beauty, safety and independence to your home. Our showers adapt to your needs with our specialized accessories.
A bathroom remodel can be as simple as the right accessories, including specialized grab bars to help make transferring safer and easier. Or it can mean a complete bathroom upgrade, with the end-result looking stylish and up to date. In fact, it is estimated that 110% of the cost of a bathroom upgrade is recouped later on down the road in possible resale.
From design to construction, Accessible Solutions will coordinate all services for your new bathroom or bathroom remodeling project. All our low-curb or barrier free showers are commercial grade, durable plywood reinforced fiberglass with a “real tile” look finish. You can customize with color options you design! We also offer walk-in tubs that can come with air jets for circulation issues, or water jets for therapeutic purposes, all at a substantial discount to our competitors, with options others just don’t offer.

“My name is Jerry and I'm a Disabled American Veteran and because of my disabililty I was unable to use my bathroom. Fortunately, Woodwise Construction owner's Jim and Deb Chesbrough came to my rescue. Deb assisted me from day one with all the paper work from the Veteran's Administration and boy, there's a lot. She knew the regulations and kept everything constantly on track. Jim and his construction team did a terrific job renovating my bathroom. He was always communicating with me about the design. Jim was always conscious of cleanliness, respecting my wishes and noise level. Together they made my bathroom handicap accessible without making it look like a hospital. Jim and Deb were always professional and very kind to me.THEY GAVE ME BACK MY INDEPENDENCE AND TRULY ARE ANGELS ON EARTH.”
