Handicap Bars / August 5, 2018 / MillicentChaloux
Grabbing on to items that are not meant for providing support will only make using the bathroom a risky experience. This is especially so in cases where the person tries to grab hold of the sink especially if it is a wall mounted one. Attachments not designed to provide support will only let the grabber down and could result in serious accidents and injuries. All bars and poles come in a variety of surface features and safety designs. You must shop around for the one most suitable for use in your bathroom. You must take into consideration the conditions and needs of the user focusing especially on the weight and also on what the user will need to use the safety feature for. Now more than ever the concept of remaining in our homes well into our senior years is becoming increasingly attractive. But before we make that decision there are some serious issues that need to be considered. First and foremost is our health for no matter how safe we make our home we need to be healthy enough to live on our own or at least with a minimum amount of assistance.
Remember that grab bars are small enough to go anywhere and can be placed on the wall in front of your toilet or beside it. Since there are several diameters you can try and get one that will fit in the tightest spaces for compact and durable safety. If your greatest fear is that the grab bar wont match whats in your bathroom there is something for you too! Grab bars dont have to be just plain old stainless steel nor do they have to be plain on the ends or attach so coldly into the wall. Available for user enjoyment are other colors such as white or bronze and there are some styles available that are very pretty and pleasant to look at as well. These kinds of grab bars are wonderful additions to your home and best of all the beauty of the items do not take away from the safety they provide.
If you or someone you know has a problem getting out of the tub or rising from the throne get a grab bars and see if it doesnt help. Something to hang on to and pull on while you are standing will definitely give you a boost and since safety is so important these are especially a great idea for an elderly person or s someone that has become handicapped or anticipates not being able to move so swiftly in the future. Grab bars are great for small children too especially if you have a high tub or shower that is difficult for little ones to get into. Either way getting some grab bars for the shower is a good idea for just about anyone.
