The use of safety rails and grab bars in the bathroom can help prevent slips and falls. You can add them wherever additional support may be required in the home, especially in potentially wet areas around the sink, bath, shower or toilet. Permanent safety rails can be screwed onto a suitable wall or fixed surface. Grab rails with suction cups can be attached temporarily to smooth surfaces, such as baths and tiled walls. Bath rails with clamps can be attached temporarily to the sides of most baths.
