Falls are the #1 threat to senior health and safety and grab bars in the shower are essential for older individuals who want to age in place for the following reasons:
As people age, their balance and stability may decline, making them more prone to slips and falls. Grab bars provide a secure handhold, reducing the risk of accidents and providing stability while moving in and out of the shower or while bathing.
By installing grab bars, older individuals can maintain their independence and perform daily bathing activities with confidence. The bars offer support and allow them to steady themselves without relying on assistance from others.
Grab bars enhance the accessibility of the shower, especially for individuals with mobility issues or disabilities. They provide a point of leverage, making it easier to enter and exit the shower, maneuver within the space, and transfer to and from shower seats or benches.
Installing grab bars proactively is a wise step in long-term planning. Even if an older individual currently does not require assistance, having grab bars in place can help prevent accidents in the future as their needs and abilities may change.Making sure you or your loved one's home is safe for everyday life is key to being able to maintain a healthy, quality life at home. Falling in the shower can be physically devastating. Medications, vision impairment and general weakness along with environmental factors put seniors in danger of seriously injuring themselves in a fall. Having assist bars in place will provide a level of safety and security so that you or your loved one can remain at home and feel at peace.
