A safe and stable bath step, the Red Ashby Step Two has been designed specifically for dementia sufferers. The step is used to help those who are less mobile on their feet with getting in and out of a bath. It can be incredibly difficult for people with sore joints or poor balance to step up into a bath unaided. This handy bath step has two heights. On one side, the height is raised by 4 inches, but if turned upside down, the height raises by 6 inches.
This is facilitated by the clever reversible design. There is a large textured standing area for both feet, which reduces the chance of slippages occurring. The user can have peace of mind as they get into the bath, as four secure slip-resistant feet help keep the step in place. There is also a built in carry handle to move it between rooms with ease.
What sets this bath step apart is the striking red colouring. White equipment in white bathrooms have the potential to make those with dementia feel lost, leading to anxiety. The striking red colour has been shown to increase brain activity, stimulating adrenaline production, helping users recognise their surroundings. This makes life easier for dementia patients, boosting confidence and independence.
