Some home modifications are not possible, such as a walk-in tub, or a barrier free shower. This could be because the home is a rental, or the cost is just too prohibitive. In this case, an alternative safety measure could be the installation of grab bars. Grab bars are the most common safety measure to assist in transfers and with balance issues. They can be used in the tub, shower, or by the toilet. In addition, grab bars can be used by caregivers when assisting with transfers. There are also floor to ceiling grab bars, which can be helpful next to the bed or near a chair to help you get in and out of bed or up from a chair.

Note: Always have a professional install handrails and grab bars. If not installed properly, injury can occur.
