Grab Bars in St. Louis

There was a time when nobody thought they needed seatbelts. This is the current attitude towards grab bars; “I don’t need grab bars”. However, grab bars save lives, it’s just that simple.

Emergency room statistics show that we all fall – from five years old to ninety years old – with the same frequency. But at some point, we don’t bounce so well, and the ramifications of a fall increase dramatically. So, this is why our message remains; grab bars save lives.

Additionally, grab bars don’t have to look “clinical”. They can actually be quite beautifully disguised as towel bars and even toilet paper dispensers.

Promise Home Works has installed hundreds of grab bars in St. Louis, St. Charles and the entire St. Louis metropolitan area. We typically install grab bars as a part of bigger project, but if you just need one grab bar, we can definitely do that for you too.

Benefits of Grab Bars

Grab bars can quickly and easily be installed in various rooms and hallways of the home. Grab bars can help with:
  • Fall prevention
  • Stability when stepping into the tub or shower
  • Stability when walking through an area with a tripping hazard, a threshold, a short step, an entranceway, etc.
  • Balance while standing in the shower
  • Help with getting up or sitting down near the toilet or shower bench
  • Providing confidence to people who feel uneasy balancing on their own
  • Providing peace of mind for caregivers and family members who fear that a loved one could easily trip or fall due to being unstable on their feet
  • Saving time that would otherwise be spent on struggling to keep balance, walk, get up or sit down
In regards to more specific, clinical applications, grab bars can help:
  • Those who have muscle weakness
  • Those who have cognitive impairment
  • Those who have recently undergone surgery
  • Those who experience bariatric issues
  • Those who suffer from vertigo

Grab Bar Basics

Grab bars are devices that attach to a wall and allow an individual to have a hand-hold in any area where balance or moving from point A to point B might be a problem. Grab bars can be small and minimally noticed or they can be four feet long (or longer if needed). Our grab bars come in various finishes, including chrome, brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze and many others. We can even install the grab bars to fit into the aesthetics of the home design. For example, we can install the grab bar to look like a towel bar when, in actuality, it serves as a strong device for the user. Our grab bars can also fold up against the wall to be out of the way and then can be folded down when they are needed. They can even look like a toilet paper holder and allow stability for standing and sitting without having the appearance of a traditional grab bar.

What other home modifications are typically installed with grab bars?

Grab bars are a small – but integral – part of our overall home safety program. One widely-used strategy for home safety is removing the tub and installing a barrier-free or roll-in shower. This is also known as a tub-to-shower conversion. Some older homes in St. Louis require quite a bit of framework to be added for leveling and blocking, but we take advantage of having the studs exposed and block the entire area behind the walls to accommodate any grab bar placement.

Another home modification, that is almost always coupled with grab bar installation, is door widening. So many homes in the St. Louis area have tiny doors and most wheelchairs require a minimum door size of 32 inches. As Promise Home Works engages in widening doors, we usually install any necessary grab bars in the home at the same time.
