Shower and Fall Prevention Grab Bars
One most effective devices available for fall prevention is securely mounted grab bars strategically located to accommodate the client’s needs and make shower time safer. Grab bars are often used in many areas of the home, but they are most commonly used in the bathroom, in and around bath tubs, showers and toilets. At Stay Home Instead, we use secure grab bar mounting techniques in order to reduce the chance of falls, even when mounted in fiberglass or tile.
Our grab bars are designed specifically to support a client’s weight and provide a stable surface to hold onto when it’s time to get in or out of the bathtub. Our team has specialized tools and techniques allowing us to install grab bars into a variety of surfaces around your home.
Additionally, our fall prevention bars are designed to assist a user when climbing the stairs, as well as helping client’s getting in and out of bed. We are happy to offer a FREE grab bar coupon when you purchase two grab bars at regular price.
An individual should not be restricted from certain areas of a house due to a staircase. Our stairlifts are the perfect solution, allowing those with mobility challenges to move up and down their stairs with ease. There is no need to fear in the event of a power outage, our stairlifts are battery powered and can be used multiple times before needing a re-charge. The stairlifts compact folding design allows the chair to reside out of the way when not in use. Plus, the “call” function gives the user the ability to summon the chair to their level. The Stay Home Instead stairlift is perfect for anyone aging in place in the comfort of their home.
Ramps & Hand Rails
If you or someone you love has challenges entering and exiting a house, as well as moving throughout the home, a ramp will make it more accessible. Whether you’re looking for simple threshold ramp designed to fit an entryway, an easily moved modular ramp or an entire ramp system specifically built to fit a home, our team will make sure you are able to enter and exit your house with ease. Handrails are an effective safety feature when used in conjunction with ramps. If needed, ramps can be used as a stand-alone solution too.
We are proud to offer three shower designs to ensure you find the perfect solution. Our Barrier Free showers, with a shallow 2½” threshold allows our client’s to enter and exit the shower with ease. Our Roll-In showers with no threshold is a safe choice for wheelchair users. Finally, our Wet Room is an open space created for maximum accessibility. It holds a shower, toilet and vanity while maintaining safety through ventilation and waterproof tiles.

In such a slippery environment, a bathroom is possibly the most common place for a fall to occur. Our products such as, walk in bathtubs and bath seats, ensure a safe environment. We also offer an entire bathroom remodel to fully optimize your space maximizing the safety and functionality of the environment.
