Available for free download, Occupational Analysis: Activity Analysis of Toileting and Single Handed Care: Toilet Guidance have both been written by occupational therapists commissioned by the company.
Both facilitate the assessment process, to enable appropriate selection of toilet assistive technology as part of a home adaptation.
Robin Tuffley, Closomat marketing manager, commented: “There are moves, particularly in Scotland as part of the Scottish Government’s Adapting for Change (AfC) programme, to ensure housing adaptations practitioners have the skills they need to help people make informed decisions.
“It’s about preventing crisis by anticipating housing needs. Using the toilet is one of the five key activities of daily living (ADLs) used to asses a person’s need for care intervention, yet is too often overlooked because people are inherently reticent to discuss their inability to use the WC, wipe themselves effectively etc.”
