Practical help to ‘tick the boxes’ in adaptation good practice delivery with Closomat

  • 23 Mar 2020

Best practice examples identified in a new checklist for local housing adaptations provision can already be met by a little care in supply chain selection, courtesy of Closomat.

Care & Repair England has written the ‘Help with Home Adaptations: Improving Local Services’ guide to assist in improving services so delivery of independent living is made easier.

It includes a digest of good practice delivery features, which include links to added value services, and fostering of a culture of continuous improvement.

Robin Tuffley, marketing manager at Closomat, commented: “In reality, key elements of the good practice delivery are already easily available. It just depends on the source of supply for the products that are pivotal to delivery of a home adaptation.

“It in a fact of life that people change, and therefore an adaptation that met their needs when specified may fail to do so in part or completely within a short period of time.

“It makes sense therefore to ‘future-proof’ an adaptation, use equipment that adds value, and can evolve with the changing needs. 

“It helps all involved if the source for that equipment is centred in the UK, with comprehensive tools to support  the adaptation process, be it advice through to project management and subsequent maintenance.”

Closomat’s Palma Vita wash & dry toilet fulfils the equipment expectations, whether the adaptation is being self-funded or provided under public sector funding. 

It is the only WC of its kind that can be accessorised initially and retrospectively, so it continues to allow people to deal with intimate hygiene independently, for as long as possible.

In its simplest form, it enables everybody – whether or not they require their home adapted – to go to the toilet with optimum hygiene and cleanliness.

When they become less able to perform this independently, the Palma Vita still means they can be clean without the need for care intervention.

As their condition deteriorates, the addition of different operating mechanisms, seats, support systems, all continue to allow for independent living, without care intervention in a very private activity.
