using hand-held shower bar as safety bar?

13 years ago

We are having a hand-held shower installed on a long bar (Kohler shower slide bar). I understand that it just screws into the tile and perhaps the backer material and is purely for holding up the shower head.

Does anyone know if that same type bar can be anchored to the studs to be used as a safety grab bar as well, or would you have to have the pretty shower bar on one wall and the fat safety bar somewhere else? Our parents visit often and aren't getting any younger (compared to hubby and I, who are forever young!)
