When we become older or when we are affected by illness or disability, making adaptations to our home to ensure it is safer can make all the difference. Installing grab rails within the home and handrails outside can significantly reduce the risk of falls and provide stability for the user.
Grab rails are available in various lengths, shapes and sizes. They can be positioned anywhere in and around the home to provide support, however they are most commonly used in the bathroom where movement in and out of a bath or shower can be wet and slippery. Having the necessary support in place significantly reduces the risk of falling.
At Able Access, our bathroom grab bars have been designed to support those with mobility issues, such as the elderly. For a better quality of life, the installation of the bathroom grab rails for the elderly will maintain independence and allow the individual to enter and leave their shower or bath without assistance.
When installed correctly, grab rails can provide help to push or pull against when standing up, to provide support while sitting down, provide a firm grip when transferring from one position to another and provide balance when standing or carrying out an activity.
Most of our grab rails are attached to the wall, however wall to floor and floor to ceiling rails are also available. We can even provide a combination of vertical and horizontal rails to offer extra support. The type of positioning required will depend upon your grip and arm strength and the materials that have been used to construct your home.
At Able Access, customer experience remains at the forefront of our processes. Our relationships with healthcare professions, charities and housing associations means that we have expert knowledge in carrying out a thorough installation process. This knowledge combined with our experience means that we can install both disabled grab rails and bathroom rails for the elderly quickly and efficiently to minimise inconvenience.
Whatever grab rail you decide necessary, we can provide unique and versatile solutions that are suitable for both permanent and temporary use. We understand that each person will have individual challenges, so managing these restrictions is vital. We do this by aiding our customers and improving their quality of life, and we are always on hand to answer any questions you may have.
