When we returned to the next meeting, we were the only ones who had come prepared with our own views in writing. In fact, the woman who was to be the youth leader had prepared nothing and was still unable to offer anything of substance. The discussion continued with the turning point in the meeting being when one of the mothers asked this very astute question: “Are we wanting to minister to youth from covenant families or to covenant families who have youth in them?” This simple insight clarified the difference between a family integrated perspective on high school age kids and the normal perspective you find in most traditional churches.
If the problem is getting into and out-of a conventional bathtub (like most of us as we get "wiser" in age), just buy a bathtub LIFT for less than $. You just step into the bathtub and sit down, lower yourself with the remote control and then lift back up at the completion of your bath. Just be sure there are other safety articles in place, like grab bars and mats or the like to prevent slipping, etc. Amazon and medical supply sites sell these and they are great! I use one and my 92-year-old father uses one. He weighs about 185 pounds. You can save thousands of dollars and you don't need special plumbing or water heaters.
