A Guide To Bathroom Grab Bars

As we age, the bathroom can become a tricky place. The inability to get around as well as we once could, mixed with wet, slippery surfaces can create a dangerous combination.

Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that every year three million seniors are taken to the emergency room and treated for injuries from falls. And what’s more, the CDC says more than 95 percent of hip fractures in the United States are caused by a fall.

But, fortunately, grab bars in the bathroom can make it safer and help the elderly to maintain freedom just that much longer.

Advantages Health Benefits

The fear of falling and getting hurt can keep elderly from doing a lot of things – including taking a bath. Seniors can become reluctant to bathe or shower as often as they should because they don’t want to run the risk of getting hurt.

The shower or bathtub isn’t the only place where falls can occur. Sitting down and getting off the toilet can cause seniors to take a tumble as well. Sometimes, it’s just because they are getting older and balance isn’t as good as it once was.

Grab bars are a relatively inexpensive way to make bathing easier – allowing the elderly to take care of their hygiene themselves and not have to ask for help to do that either.

Versatility

Grab Bars have a simple design but are incredibly versatile and the most effective way to be safe in the bathroom. There are three different types of grab bars – vertical, horizontal and diagonal.

Vertical Grab bars are easier to grip, help with limited balance and are easier to use for people with arthritis.

Horizontal Grab Bars allow elderly to rotate their body, are sturdy when they pull themselves up to stand and make it easier to get in and out of a wheelchair and into a tub.

Diagonal Grab Bars can accommodate several different heights, provide a more natural motion in the hands and wrist when grabbing it and help smoothly transition from sitting to standing.

In addition to the direction they go, there are several types of grab bars to choose from.

Straight Grab Bars

Wave-Style Grab Bars

Other Bathroom Safety Features to Consider

Tub Seats and Tub Benches

Raised Toilet Seats

A raised toilet seat can help if you have trouble sitting down on the toilet and then getting back up. It raises the height by three or four inches and cuts down the distance for you to get to the seat.
