Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury among seniors. In fact, every 11 seconds, a senior is treated in the emergency room for a fall. The average treatment costs seniors incur is $30,000 on average. But the reality is that many of these falls could be prevented.
There is a simple solution that can help significantly reduce a senior’s risk of falling: grab bars. Grab bars are a simple and cost-effective solution that can be easily installed in any bathroom — where 80% of falls occur — to provide support and stability, reducing falls and serious injuries.
Our Grab the Bars initiative aims to raise funds to provide grab bars for seniors who may not otherwise have the means or ability to install them. All donations will go toward the purchase and installation costs of grab bars for seniors across the country. Give today to help close the gap in senior care.
