Unfortunately many people still think that grab bars are unnecessary, as their bathroom is fitted with strategically placed towel bars, which, for some, may be used as substitutes. The reality is that towel bars, or shower/tub features, aren’t built to support the weight of a person, but the weight of towels, and are therefore unfit for the job. Grab bars are designed specifically to benefit people with balance or mobility issues, and are the safest tool a person could install in a bathroom environment to prevent falls.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

    It’s Not Flu: Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Looks a Lot Like Other Illnesses  Headache, upset stomach, tired, dizzy –sounds like the flu, doesn’t it? But it could be carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning occurs when too much of this gas builds up in your body due to unsafe levels of CO in the air you breathe. Almost anything that burns fuel releases CO, including your furnace, water heater, gas stove, fireplace, charcoal grill, space heater, generator, and car. Carbon monoxide poisoning is more likely to happen during winter months and during storms or natural disasters because fuel-burning devices are commonly used then. Most of the time, CO is safely vented out of your home, but misusing or not maintaining these sources can lead to unsafe levels of CO gas in the air.

ADA approved grab bars

ADA approved grab bars  It’s a fact that although everyone could experience a fall, seniors are prone to falling much more than younger adults are. Luckily, most falls do not result in any injury, with the exception of minor bruises or scraped knees, but falls that occur in the bathroom, bring with them much more serious consequences.
