Grab Bars and Handrails: “All of the people were very nice and helpful. They were an answered prayer for me. I fell down the stairs many times before they fixed them…I thank you all”.
Can you imagine living in a home without being able to leave it without falling? Or are you too scared to take a shower because you cannot step into your tub without falling? While installing a small handrail or grab bars might seem like a small task for some-for the elderly and those with disabling conditions, it is an insurmountable task. As you can see in the pictures below, the small handrail installed now has allowed someone safe access out of their home to do what you and I take for granted, going to the grocery store, church, and visiting relatives. According to Aging.com, a full 80% of falls happen in the bathroom. Like the ones shown below, grab bars installed within a bathtub allow one to minimize the risk of these falls.
