With the arrival of January comes the beginning of National Bath Safety Month. More than one in three seniors over the age of 65 fall each year and, from this, 80 percent of those falls occur in the bathroom. Due to the multitude and instability of bathroom surfaces, it is important for the security of you and your loved ones to properly outfit these problematic areas. At Bellin Heath Home Care Equipment, we have a full line of products to help you and your family attain the proper provisions to avoid potential future injuries.

For instant security, the 12” Suction Cup Grab Bar is an easy-to-install option. By utilizing the grab bar, you can safely enter and exit the bathtub and shower. Since no tools are required to install, you can also take it with you during travels to ensure you have the assistance you need. For versatile functions, the Multi-Purpose Grab Bar with Towel Holder and the Multi-Purpose Grab Bar with Toilet Paper Holder allow for maximum support and space-saving details. Each of these products offer in-home installation, so upgrading your bathroom can be quick and easy.
Stay Safe in the Shower with Transfer Benches
According to the CDC, approximately 1.6 million older adults seek emergency care every year for fall-related injuries, fractures, or head traumas. Showers are one of the most at-risk areas to experience such an injury. To combat this, transfer benches and shower chairs offer additional support to avoid potentially dangerous situations. This includes the Mesh Tub and Shower Seat with Back which provides a comfortable seat, along with an ergonomic back design, and can fit most showers or tubs. If you need additional versatility, the DMI Heavy Duty Sliding Transfer Bench features a cut-out for perineal access, adjustable legs, and sliding seats with a nylon strap for security. With a variety of products, you can find the best option to fit your unique needs.
