Things to consider when buying a security pole for your home or a parent’s home:

Will it fit my ceiling? Check the specifications to make sure it will fit your ceiling. If you order the wrong size, you may have to pay an expensive restock fee and return shipping.

How sturdy is it? You want a nice and sturdy security pole that will support your weight. Check the specifications for the product you are considering for any weight limits. There are also bariatric options available if needed.

Does the handle rotate around the pole? This common feature just makes things easier when you are moving from different positions and angles (for example if you are moving from a bed to a wheelchair).

Is it affordable? Since insurance may not cover the cost, price is an important factor. Fortunately, a good assist pole can be found for less than $200.
