Multi-generational living? Don’t forget the toilet says Closomat

  • 2 Oct 2019

One issue not generally discussed when talking about multi-generational households is the bathroom – in terms of access to, and use of. However, Closomat are doing just that…

It is a growing problem for the households, but it does provide a potential increase in sales for all involved in the business of bathrooms: architects, builders, plumbers, and retailers.

There has been a 46% rise in multi-generational households in less than a decade and it is set to continue; some 60% of people would consider living in a multi-generational household.

Set alongside that the fact that, on average, we go to the toilet eight times a day – multiply that by each resident, and you have a very busy room!

But each generation has different needs; for instance, children may be young, and not very adept at wiping properly; the senior citizens may equally struggle with wiping, for different reasons – general flexibility, manual dexterity, balance to name a few, but are reluctant to ask family to help.

The solution is Closomat’s range of wash/dry (shower) WCs. Looking like, and capable of being used as, a conventional WC, the Closomat has integrated douching and drying, offering the best performance in each on the market.

Thus, if preferred, the user does not have to wipe manually. The toilet cleans them instead, to a consistent high standard, every time.

Each of Closomat’s range has bespoke benefits, depending on the household’s needs.

The core Palma Vita, Britain’s biggest selling floor-standing wash dry toilet, is the only one that can be accessorised initially or retrospectively to accommodate changing needs.

The Lima Lifter features height adjustability, meaning each user can electrically adjust the WC to their optimum height to get on and off; it even means that if an older person struggles to bend their knees, the WC can be raised for them to sit on, get off, and lowered, so their feet remain in contact with the floor.

The latest evolution, the Asana, features wall-hung contemporary styling, a range of douche options for optimum wellness, and an integrated ambient light which makes it easy to locate in the dark.

Full details of the Closomat range of wash/dry toilets can be found at www.closomat.co.uk, alongside a raft of useful information to help choose the most appropriate WC.
