As I watched my grandparents age quickly over recent years they began to struggle to move around their house. They refused to have grab rails installed because of the stigma attached with the stale hospital looking rails. My grandpa had a minor stroke during this time and could no longer hold his balance. He fell multiple times and eventually broke his leg before he was forced to move into a nursing home. My grandma had always refused to go into a nursing home even after breaking her hip from a fall.
PROVIDING THE HELPING HAND, WITH DIGNITY
While working as a design engineer I was approached by an occupational therapist friend who spoke of the requests from her clients for more attractive home care products. From there Avail began with a ground up redesign of the grab rail to improve their style, ergonomics an installation. We now collaborate with one of Australia’s leading universities to ensure we provide world class products and solutions. We strive to provide products our customers want to have don’t just have to have.

Our styles are carefully selected to suit leading home design trends. We help a range of customers including home owners, architects and occupational therapists. At Avail our core aim is to give the peace of mind that we and our loved ones can live safely and independently with dignity. Dave Sayers, founder.
