Considering all accidents that occur during bathroom use in elderly homes, it’s very important to take action with the installation of bathroom safety measures for our loved ones since it is an high risk area.
Grab rail also known as grab bar is one of the safety measures that prevents fall from slippery floors and bathtubs.They are strategically attached to walls in the tub and shower area to offer a steady brace while getting in and out of the shower or getting up and down from the toilet seat.
There are different types of grab bars needed in specific areas in the bathroom. At least two grab bars are needed in the tub.
Grab bars properly and permanently secured to the walls are much safer than the suction cup bars.
Most come with weight capacity, so please be sure to keep this in mind before installation.
