Different Types of Grab Bar for Your Bathroom
When moving around the house gets difficult and risky, you know you can’t just let your loved one sit or be in bed all day. Every one of us values our independence and mobility. Despite injury or pain, your homebound loved one looks forwards to moving around on their own.
You can make their desires happen without sacrificing their safety. You can install devices in the house to provide support and balance even when you are not around. Grab bars are an ideal solution for loved ones to keep moving without full supervision.
There are different types of grab bars you can install and one of the prominent locations you need to install them is in the bathroom. Bathrooms are commonly used areas however these spaces are also considered risky. Water, spills, poor lighting, limited space, and other concerns make bathrooms a dangerous space to move around.
Here are some types of grab bars you may want to explore.
- The wave – this kind of grab bar is designed like a wave which makes it easier for someone to hold or grab.
- The flip – is to be placed near the toilet to maximize small spaces. It flips and therefore can be tucked out of the way to provide support in tight areas.
- Tension rods – has large handles and can be placed anywhere in the hope but mostly by the toilet. This is a tension-mounted rod from the floor to reach the ceiling.
There are more versions of grab handles. Check with your local home depot or consult your loved one’s therapists on the safest and most trusted kinds.
