One in five (22%) adults in the United States report having doctor diagnosed arthritis.(1) Many people with arthritis struggle in their normal daily activities. Now there are options for people to live their daily lives with much more ease and comfort. The Arthritis Foundation has commended Premier Care in Bathing (Premier Care) for their Ease-Of-Use Walk-In Baths and Showers.

Many people find that this allows them to stay in their homes longer and enjoy their day-to-day activities in their life with fewer struggles and issues.

As the first walk-in bath to be commended by the Arthritis Foundation, Premier Care is proud to serve people with arthritis and mobility issues. Premier Care strives to help people maintain their independence and dignity.

Premier Care receives many letters from satisfied customers stating how their tubs are easy to get into and bathe and how the unique Hydrovescent Therapy helps soothe their arthritis aches and helps them feel more energized. Here is what they are saying:

"I am writing to let you know how much I am enjoying my new Premier tub. I have had Osteoarthritis for years which made taking a bath impossible. Now I take three or four baths a week and enjoy every minute of them."

"I have gout and painful arthritis, so it's very difficult for me to get into a regular tub. The door makes it so easy to get into my walk-in bath, and the tiny bubbles of the Hydrovescent Therapy are great for circulation in my legs."

Premier Care proudly displays The Arthritis Foundation Ease-Of-Use logo on all commended Walk-In Baths and Showers.
