Install a Handicapped Grab Bar to Protect Loved Ones

If you have an elderly loved one, you know that falling is a risk that we all have to deal with. A fall for an older loved one could end up being devastating and most of the time it does not have to be anything major that makes them fall. It could be something simple like taking a shower or standing up after using the bathroom or watching television. This is why most doctors suggest that you install a handicapped grab bar to protect loved ones from potential falls.

How Grab Bars Help

When you have grab bars in the home where an older person lives, you can feel confident that they are going to be safe. If you install these bars in the bathroom, near the shower and the toilet, and near their most favorite chair; you can feel confident that when they attempt to stand up, they will succeed. They will have a stable bar to hold onto while they get their balance. There will be no need for you to worry about not being next to them while they attempt to “get their feet under them”. All that is required is that they be able to hold on to the bar while they are standing up from a seated position.

Use Bars in Every Room

The bathroom is a very common place for falls and accidents to happen. It could happen to everyone, but the elderly people we love is even more susceptible to falls in this area of their home. It is a combination of wet floors, slippery tiles, and other things. Therefore, you should put bars randomly around the bathroom where they are needed the most. In the shower, near the toilet, and along the wall if you do not have throw rugs to keep the floor from being slick. You can use bars in every room. They can be useful beside the bed and in areas where they may change clothes. These bars are designed to be versatile and usable wherever you feel there is a need for added safety. As a bonus, they are also designed to be antimicrobial, which means that no matter how much they are used, they will remain germ free. They will also never rust. This is thanks to their stainless-steel design. Isn’t it time to ensure that you can worry a little less about your loved ones?
