That Grab Bar Guy Bringing Safety to Your Home By Pam Teel That Grab Bar Guy is a locally owned, family-run business dedicated to helping everyone live more safely in his or her own homes. The company sells and installs grab bars, hand showers and home safety products. In 2003, Tim Ryder, the founder, was injured in a fall at home and he required surgery. While recovering at home, he relied heavily on grab bars that helped make it possible for him to transfer in and out of the tub safely. Tim knows first-hand that professionally installed grab bars promote independence and security. Bathroom safety is no joke. According to the Home Safety Council, 21 million people visit hospital emergency rooms each year because of a fall in the home. That Grab Bar Guy is often called upon to help people transition safely to home after a stay in a hospital or rehabilitation center. More and more people are installing grab bars simply to prevent falls and maintain independence. Sometimes, people resist grab bars as they feel they will make them look “old” or “frail” or make their home “look like a hospital.” Today’s grab bars can be quite decorative and often hide in plain sight. The installation of grab bars can improve safety in the home, boost self-confidence, maintain an active lifestyle, ensure continued independence and provide peace of mind. That Grab Bar Guy is often recommended to families by occupational therapists, physical therapists and visiting nurses to help prevent future problems. That Grab Bar Guy installs not only grab bars but also hand held showers, indoor and outdoor handrails and small threshold ramps. Grab bars can be installed anywhere there is a step or change in elevation, at a doorway or anywhere a little assistance is needed to step up or down. That Grab Bar Guy has been installing grab bars, hand showers and home safety products for more than ten years and has thousands of satisfied customers throughout all of South Jersey. That Grab Bar Guy follows ADA guidelines and uses installation methods recommended by Cornell University/Joan & Sanford Weill Medical College and the Eastern Paralyzed Veterans Association. Their clean-cut, courteous installers wear protective masks and gloves and they will disinfect the installation area both before and after the work is performed. They want to keep their clients, their families and their team safe. Call That Grab Bar Guy today for a no obligation quote so they can help you can “get a grip”! 609-451-0225
