As age progresses, some people choose to move into a retirement facility in order to feel safer and looked after, but most seniors, prefer to continue living in the comfort of their own home.
The decision to grow old surrounded by familiar faces and belongings, is an important one. One that consequently brings on different changes to the house in question. Safety must in fact be kept high in mind, and a sense of security can be achieved by simple additions. A bathroom grab bar for example.
Statistically each year one-third of adults aged 65 and older, suffer moderate to severe injuries due to falls, many of which, occur in a slippery shower.
Senior Safe Homes provides professional installation and has a wide selection of ADA Approved Grab Bars to choose from.
The Home Care by Moen® Stainless Grab Bar. for example, is designed to help keep your balance when you use the shower or the tub. Made from stainless steel, this bathroom grab bar gives you a firm grip to easily hold on to.
With a few simple home modifications and the addition of installing items such as grab bars outside the tub or shower, you can dramatically reduce the risk of seniors falling while in the bathroom.
