The headline might be our famous last words — but it can be done. Maybe not completely, but the important things can be done.

As I have been saying for years, most accidents happen in the bathroom: 92% in the bathroom area and 72% of all seniors get injured getting in and out of a bathtub. A quick turn and then a slip and fall; break a hip, toe, foot or arm. It’s all bad — especially if you’re older than 55. Have you noticed everything hurts worse as we age? A bump is now a bruise, and a bruise is now a break. That, to me, is pretty unfair. My recommendation is to be proactive.

Tropical can change a tub to a shower in three days or less. If all goes well, Tropical can also change the toilet and put in a nonslip vinyl floor. Why these things in particular? Like I said before, many senior accidents happen when they’re getting in and out of a bathtub. That is why I think being proactive for the future is so important for a senior’s quality of life.
Nobody plans on falling. I have noticed that as I get older (I am now 67), my body just cannot keep up with my mind. I mentally feel like I’m 30 or 40, but the body doesn’t react that fast anymore. Let’s face it: When we look in the mirror as we get older, we wonder who it is that’s looking back at us. Well, it’s time to get ahead of age for many reasons.


First, inflation. If we think we should wait to spend to be safe, do you really think things will get cheaper? Never in my life did I think I would see a Toyota cost $30,000-$40,000 — but we are here. It’s not getting cheaper, and retirement income does not keep up with inflation.

Second, what is good health and quality of life worth? Being stuck in a walker or wheelchair cannot be fun. Having independence in life is a basic need for everyone. Call Tropical for that free estimate and get ahead of the game.

Finally, call Tropical now. Tropical just purchased two containers of top-quality bathroom conversion units from Jacuzzi — complete with seats, handi-bars and non slip floors. Best of all, all the products come with a lifetime warranty from the factory. So, if you want the best products at a reasonable price contact our team and let’s do this today.
