Pasadena, CA, October 24, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- On Saturday, October 19th, Bliss Tubs hosted the Staying Put At Home event at their Pasadena headquarters. Seniors throughout the Pasadena area attended to learn about maintaining their independence while aging gracefully. Pasadena Village (www.pasadenavillage.org) and The Highland Park Art Club co-hosted the event with the Art Club presenting a gallery of their works in oils, acrylics and watercolours.
Michael Thomas, co-author of Residential Design For Aging in Place and Founder of the Design Alliance for Accessible Sustained Environments (DAASE), presented on independent senior living. Attendees learned valuable tips for adapting their home for their senior years. Thomas focused on simple renovations which need not be cost-prohibitive.

Peter Kwong, a local Tai Chi instructor specializing in senior mobility, spoke on the Science of Slips and Falls. Kwong taught the group techniques for increasing balance to prevent common senior injuries in order to remain mobile and independent.

The presentations were followed by active group discussions. Attendees addressed the pros and cons of home remodelling versus moving (to a nursing home or assisted living facility). Bliss Tubs provided new perspectives on the possibilities of enjoying the senior years from the comfort of home.
At Bliss, independent living in the senior years remains the top priority. Whether through educational community events or quality Walk-In Tubs, Bliss Tubs is working to ensure an independent and informed senior community.
Bliss Walk-In Tub Benefits
In addition to maintaining independence by allowing seniors to remain in their homes, a walk-in bathtub can provide a host of benefits. A walk-in tub reduces the possibility of a painful slip or fall, and the resulting costly medical bills. Research has also indicated that a warm, walk-in bath provides the ideal setting to alleviate symptoms of arthritis and other ailments.
