Miracle Bathroom Modifications (Safeway Step® Distributor)

Safeway Step® can trace its origins to the vision and entrepreneurial spirit of its founder, Don Stafford. A 37-year retired veteran of the City of Cincinnati Fire Department, Mr. Stafford identified the need for a product to assist a growing segment of our society to more easily enter and exit the bathtub area. Mr. Stafford applied for and was successfully awarded a patent for his design and installation process for his revolutionary product, the Safeway Step®. This product represented a new method to provide easier access to the bathtub area without having to remove the existing tub. Today, Safeway continues to develop innovative accessibility products and the company is managed by Don Stafford's sons, Chris and Doug. Safeway's patented accessibility modifications have been installed for personal homeowners, assisted living and other senior living residences, state and local social programs and hospitality properties throughout the US and abroad. Safeway Step has a national network of professional installation partners.

Safeway Accessibility Products

The challenge to effectively age-in-place is often environmental issues within the home that make activities of daily living a challenge. Many individuals, particularly the elderly and those suffering from arthritis, debilitating injury, handicap, and/or general loss of mobility, may have trouble accessing the bathtub area due to the high step that is typically required to step into and out of the bathtub. For such persons, the sidewall of the bathtub may be an insurmountable hurdle. Even with the assistance of a caregiver, many individuals may not be capable of safely stepping over the sidewall of a bathtub to take a bath or shower. Safeway offers multiple bath accessibility products to provide easier accessibility to existing bathtub for a fraction of the cost compared to tearing-out the existing bathtub, including the Safeway Tub Door® and the Safeway Step®. The Safeway Tub Door® is a product and installation method designed to add a water-tight sealable door to an existing bathtub. Installation of the Safeway Tub Door® includes cutting and removing a section of the existing tub and custom fitting the resulting opening with the Safeway Tub Door™. The Safeway Tub Door® is an important addition to Safeway's industry leading line of bath accessibility products and builds upon the versatility provided by the Company's initial core product, the Safeway Step®. The Safeway Step® retrofits the existing bathtub into a permanent walk-in shower and has been installed in thousands of units. Benefits of Safeway bathtub accessibility products include:
  • Makes existing bathtub more accessible.
  • Provides bathtub retrofit options with or without a door.
  • Installed in just two to three hours.
  • Reduces the possibility of falls.
  • Assists with rehabilitation and ability to stay at home longer; and,
  • Saves thousands compared to tearing out and removing the existing bathtub to install more costly renovation options, such as a walk-in shower or bath.
