Bathtub Safety

I am visually impaired with vestibular organ eye dysfunction which causes balance/vertigo problems. For safety measures and as a suggestion from my doctor, my husband built this wooden pole beside my bathtub near my bath bench for assistance in getting in and out of the bathtub and for balance in dressing myself. We did not want to install a safety rail on the side of the tub, the bath bench is where I put my towel and clothes. It assures me that I will be safe when bathing and dressing myself for the day or night.

Besides being functional, I think it's rather attractive. It gives the tub a sort of 'canopy bed' air.

I don't understand. How is it attached to the tub and the ceiling?

The wooden pole is attached to a square base in the ceiling and a square base attached to the floor.

Probably screwed into the ceiling, but not sure about the bathtub end of it.
