Closomat solutions to help deliver neighbourhoods of the future

  • 9 Apr 2019

One of the objectives set out in a new white paper on housing for the future can already be achieved, simply by appropriate selection of bathroom fixtures – which is where Closomat shine.

Neighbourhoods for the Future 2 calls for high quality housing that can be adapted to meet changing needs efficiently, in days, and deliver a home for life, with built-in adaptability.

Caroline Dinenage, Minister of State for Care, said it is about providing ‘everyone with the best possible chance to grow old with dignity in their own home’.

Robin Tuffley, Closomat marketing manager, commented: “That aim is already achieveable, at least in the bathroom. The bathroom is the most commonly adapted room.

“The report highlights, that adaptations are often done out of desperation, rather than as a planned inclusive design strategy, yet there should be a proactive approach so people can continue to look after themselves ion their own home.

“Certainly in the bathroom, that is already a reality, just by careful selection of the WC. It is the fixture most commonly in need of adjustment to accommodate changing needs.

“A shower, or wash dry, toilet delivers improved hygiene for all; as someone’s ability to clean themselves reduces, its in-built washing and drying ensures they can still go to the toilet with dignity and independence.”

Closomat’s brand-leading Palma Vita is the only wash dry toilet that can be accessorised to accommodate changing needs – a different seat, support systems, even operating mechanisms, so someone can retain that dignity and independence for much longer, without care intervention.

The growth in acceptance of ‘smart’ toilets (i.e those that wash & dry) also means the Closomat is an aspirational fixture, that people want in their home.
