Introducing Dave Flanagan, Product Assessor

Hi I’m Dave…

When I first started at Closomat I thought I would only stay for two years and then move on to another company – 14 years later and I’m still here. Why? Well in the second month of being at Closomat I realised what a huge difference the products made to people’s lives every day. Here are some of the comments I’ve heard over the years;

  • “I can now close the door and be in the toilet on my own, 20 years I’ve waited for this moment”.
  • “I can now read my book in peace and take longer in here than my Husband”.
  • “I’m all on my own” YESSSSSSS!!

So for me, it was about knowing the difference this toilet can make to people’s lives.

….and in my spare time…

I’ve done all types of sports, from Football and Rugby to gym workouts and running. However, nowadays it’s just about walking down the beach and contemplating life and improving mine.

How Dave helped me...

“Is there nothing you don’t know about toileting Dave? You are the toilet man of the North aren’t you.”

A Smith, OT.

At Closomat, we’re here to make life easier for everyone we work with, including our OT partners. We know one of the many challenges facing OTs is the backlog in assessments for adaptations through DFG funding. That’s why all our Product Assessors are trained Level 4 Trusted Assessors, for Assessing and Adapting the Home.

This means that we can help with your caseload of assessments and reduce the waiting times for your clients. Our Product Assessors can assist in the assessment, measurement and prescription of adaptations to ensure your client’s needs are fully and safely met.
