For seniors and people with disability, grab bars can be a lifesaver. There are many types of grab bars that can be added throughout different rooms in a home to provide stability for people who have trouble walking. However, the bathroom is often the room that makes the most sense because it is the most dangerous for seniors or those with limited mobility. In fact, falls in the bathroom due to a wet, slippery floor is one of the top causes of injuries for elderly men and women. Whether it’s the barrier that makes it difficult to get in and out of a tub or shower or a toilet that is tough to get off of, the bathroom definitely presents its challenges.
Accessibility101 works closely with the clients to fully understand their requirements and our years of experience help us determine the right position and angle for the grab bars to install. The primary focus of our installation process is customer safety, accessibility, and compliance.
