Bathrooms pose a huge obstacle to both safety and independence for older adults, people who use wheelchairs and other people with disabilities. You can improve the safety of your bathroom with a simple and inexpensive solution: grab bars.
Grab Bars from Hampton Roads Mobility
Grab bars can be placed in showers, bath tubs or around toilets to provide support and balance as you stand up, walk or transfer from a wheelchair. They provide an extra level of safety as you navigate slippery surfaces in your bathroom. Grab bars come in many shapes and sizes, fitting virtually any bathroom space and blending into your bathroom’s design.
Proper installation of grab bars is vital to prevent falls or other injuries. If you install the grab bars yourself, you take a risk that they may not be properly anchored to walls and be unable to support your weight. It can also be difficult to install grab bars if you are dealing with different materials like fiberglass, tile or cement.
At Hampton Roads Mobility, we provide personalized service not available at big box stores. Our installation experts come to your home to install grab bars. They ensure each bar is properly secured so you can rely on the bars to help you if you should fall.
