We often hear "I'm too young for grab bars" what is the apropriate age for slipping and getting hurt? All too often we find them installed incorrectly by a good natured friend and usually in the wrong place.
Originally designed for wheelchair access to a shower but we have learned over the years it has another great function. As we age stepping into a sunken shower floor basin is both dificult and dangerous. By bringing the floor up so there is no step down makes sense. Completly removable when no longer needed.
If you're showering from a seated position or being helped by an aid a hand held shower head is a must.
These closet rods pull down to wheelchair level for easy access to clothing.
This cabinet inserts allow for contents to come down to counter level on a spring loaded devise.
Emergency battery operated lighting can be installed in any room incase of a power outage.
Hand rails are not just for stairs anymore. They can be intalled in any hallway leading to the bedroom, bathroom or kitchen.

Simple locks that require a magnetis fob to release doors and drawers. They are installed on the inside of cabinet doors to prevent injury from sharps and hide medication.

When transfering a person there should be place for the person to grab onto for balance rather than the aid to prevent falling over.

Whether you call them grab bars, safety bars or safety rails, they are a great benefit for everyone. From children just starting to shower, to the physically challenged, those who have had hip, knee or shoulder surgery and especially for older adults who are not as stable as they once were.
Did you know one out of three adults age 65 and older fall each year? Falls can lead to severe injuries such as head trauma and bone fractures of the hip, shoulder, arm, leg and wrists. They can also result in loss of independence, permanent disabilities and financial hardship. As a matter of fact, and we find this quite alarming, about half of older adults who fall and are hospitalized cannot return home and continue to live on their own.
More than half of all falls occur in the home and falls in the bathroom and on stairs are responsible for more injuries than anywhere else. Please don't underestimate the importance of protecting you and your loved ones from slip and fall accidents. Home
safety products expertly installed by Grab Bar Plus are essential tools to help you prevent falls. The
stability they provide will give you a feeling of safety and comfort and will help ensure years of accident free living.
Thank you for visiting. We wish you well and look forward to helping you. Remember to make fall prevention a top priority.
