Simple Outside Handrail for Elderly
Mike from Tennessee installed this simple handrail on his mother's front steps. His hope was to encourage her mobility by making the front steps easier to navigate. Here's what Mike had to say:
The stair rail was for my mother who has difficulty navigating steps. I installed the handrail in the center of the steps. That way she can use the hand of her choice. I painted the rail with a black hammer finish. It looks great and is super strong. Thank you for a great product! Mike
In a later email he followed up saying:
Since I installed the rail, my mom is going to the mailbox, to the yard, etc. She would not get out before. The rail has been invaluable to her mobility.
Mike highlights a number of great features about our Simple Rail handrail kits.
- He was able to install the railing himself, even painting it to a color that worked for his surroundings.
- Unlike wobbly wrought iron railings, Simple Rail's pipe construction is solid and strong.
- It increased elderly mobility by increasing accessibility.
