At Age UK we have specially selected a range of products designed to put the ease and comfort back into bathing.
Whatever your individual requirements, we will always do our best to provide a bath or easy access shower product that can meet them.
One of life’s great pleasures is relaxing in a hot bath, or easing away aches and pains with a steaming shower. But it’s not quite so enjoyable when you’re worried about slipping, or concerned about how you’re going to get out of the bath.
That’s why the Age UK Group has specially selected a range of products designed to put the ease and comfort back into bathing.
We are proud to work with a leading UK mobility company, Handicare, who ensures that our customers receive exceptional service.
The range of baths and showers we have selected are designed to help you regain this simple pleasure – at a reasonable price.
Together, we are continually working towards improving later life for everyone.
To provide a made-to-measure service, a trained technical surveyor can visit you at home to assess your bathroom, explain the product options and provide a written cost quotation supported by a great low-price guarantee.
There’s no hard sell and no obligation, just a simple explanation of your options.If you decide to place an order, the installation team will carry out some final checks and endeavour to install your new bathroom with the minimum of disruption.
A technician will demonstrate how to use your new bathroom safely and provide information on customer service.
If you have any questions, or would like to book a free, no-obligation survey or consultation, simply call 0800 566 8292.(Calls are free on a landline but some mobile operators may make a charge. Calls will be recorded)
Age UK has combined our own experience with feedback from users, healthcare professionals and Handicare’s understanding of the mobility market to make sure the easy bathing range suits different needs and different budgets.
This range can meet a variety of requirements. For instance, you can opt for a specific height of shower screen, a ribbed support pole for extra security, or even a bespoke whirlpool to ease your aches and pains.
Your bathroom is as individual as you are. From the tightest of spaces to the most uniquely designed bathroom, the installers will make sure that its particular features are taken into account.
The baths and showers are designed to fit discreetly into any home, and are available in a variety of styles and a choice of finishes to complement your decor.
We at the Age UK Group are impressed with the outstanding quality and finish of these bathrooms, but we also want to offer you competitive prices. We think Handicare has done this without compromising on quality.

If you’re comfortable in a bath and your only issue is getting in and out, then a walk-in bath could be the perfect solution.
All Handicare walk-in baths have been developed to provide a bathing solution that is aesthetically pleasing, practical and easy to use.
Handicare offers a choice of showers so that you can find the one most suited to your needs and your bathroom.
There are electric and mains-fed mixer showers, all thermostatically controlled. In certain circumstances, if you already have a modern thermostatically controlled shower installed, it may even be possible for Handicare to design and build your new shower solution around it.
Whatever your requirements, a specialist surveyor can advise you on the best option for you.

Below are a few of the questions customers often ask about Age UK Bathing – we hope the answers will be helpful for you.
Age UK works closely with Handicare to ensure excellent service at all times. An independent customer satisfaction survey recently awarded Handicare over 92% 2 years running. We at Age UK are really proud of this!
Our prices range from £4,000 to £6,000. The exact price will depend on the precise product and layout of your bathroom. There are also smaller aids to help with getting in and out of a bath, including our bath lifts at £495. The simplest way to determine what the price will be is for us to arrange a free,no-obligation home technical survey.
A Handicare surveyor will visit to discuss your needs and to identify which products are most suitable for you and your bathroom – now and in the future. The visit and technical survey will take 60–90 minutes and is completely free, without obligation to buy. You will be left with information and a written quotation.
When Handicare arrives to survey your bathroom, the surveyor will also go through a series of questions to find out not only your current needs and requirements but what will also be beneficial in the near and distant future. This process is undertaken to ensure that when the product is installed, it is ideal for your bathroom and your specific needs.
You may be eligible for government support to purchase your bathing solution. We recommend that you contact your local authority to find out further details. Please note timescales from one area of the country to another may vary and this is a means-tested service.
Handicare will raise a minimum of £800,000 during 2011 for Age UK via the promotion of independent living products.
We have thought carefully about bathroom features and benefits that we think will be important to you, but the real difference is the quality of care and level of personal attention and respect that Handicare gives to customers.
Survey and installation appointments are scheduled to suit you, and no one will call without an appointment. You will be in control and kept informed throughout the decision-making and buying processes, and trained mobility advisers are on hand to assist if you have any concerns or questions.
