I'm there. I have a wall in shower and wouldn't dream of getting into the tub
I'd have to call the fire dept to get me out.

Not really. Frown
Although I think planning for and installing grab bars in the tub and shower are very useful and handy for anyone to use. And a comfort height toilet is my current and future choice.

If one were building or remodeling, some things just make sense to do, from the get go. If possible, it is always good to have a wide enough door and path in a main bathroom. Walkers and wheelchairs sort of require this, and you never know when one might be temporarily or permanently in ones future?

I absolutely despise Pat Boone...so I have vowed to never have a Walk In Tub that he now advertises and "sings" about.Wink
