£20m project to create one, nationally recognised, educational and residential centre of expertise for young people, on a single campus.
Vision Treloar includes:
Unlike similar toilets, the Clos-o-Mat can be personalised- at initial installation and later- to individual needs: over 150,000 permutations of operating mechanisms, support systems, seats, douches, height adjustability exist.
Treloars Facilities Manager Chloe Stoneham: Treloars offers much more than a formal education; it adopts a holistic approach to ensure the needs of the whole child can be met on site, and assists them in a longer term programme to take control of their lives and maximising their independence. It enables them to do more for themselves. The training programmes undertaken by students in these flats prepare them for the transition to adulthood, and for many, towards their goal of living in their own homes, independently. The Clos-o-Mat toilets help ensure our students have the ability to maximise their independence with personal hygiene, promoting increased dignity and privacy- important to all, but especially valued by the young people approaching adulthood.
Treloars Head Occupational Therapist Victoria Pitt: We have found the Clos-o-Mats easier to use, and more compatible with a wider range of shower chairs. We have almost 160 students here, all with individual requirements, so we need equipment to be as adaptable as possible. The Clos-o-Mats are user-friendly, not too complicated and can be adjusted to suit individual needs- for example controls can be adapted to the person using them. In our experience, Clos-o-Mats are often the equipment used by students at home.
Over 50,000 Clos-o-Mats are in place across the UK, in individuals homes, specialist and mainstream schools, care establishments and public venues. Many are in daily use 30 years after first being installed.
Total Hygiene, which manufactures Clos-o-Mats, in the UK, has over 50 years experience in delivering personal hygiene solutions. The company has developed a range of equipment and support services that today meets every need, including height adjustable basins, changing tables and the brand-leading, top-selling wash and dry toilet, the Clos-o-Mat Palma Vita.
Uniquely, the products are backed up by in-house support, from assessment of requirements, design of an accessible bathroom or washroom to legislative and budgetary requirements, installation and commissioning of equipment, and lifetime maintenance.
