Client was using suction cup style grab bars in the shower, which have the potential to loose suction while in use- causing a fall. Also in place were 2 standard height toilets without grab bars to assist in rising from the seat. He was having difficulty entering and exiting his home with 2 steps and no handrail.
We installed 3 grab bars using hollow wall anchor systems to ensure safety of use for the veteran. 1 22” height toilet to allow for easy rise from the seat. The 17” toilet that was removed from upstairs was placed downstairs to replace the 14” toilet, along with an 18” grab bar to assist in rising from the toilet seat. Two wrought iron hand rails were installed on the front porch to allow the veteran safe entry and exit of his home.
From the Client:
“Job well done.”
