Getting around the home can sometimes be difficult, particularly if you are elderly. The bathroom in particular can be an awkward place to move about especially getting in and out of the bath. Specially designed grab bars and grab rails are available to install around the home, ranging from handy suction grab bars to fold away grab rails. Grab bars and grab rails are an excellent addition to any house, making moving around the home much easier and safer. We will look at the different types of grab bars and rails available.
