Last time buyer? Simple fix to ensure it is a lifetime home

Palma Vita SprayWhen you’ve made the decision to make that last move, to downsize, the last thing you want is to worry about having to face a further move if your health deteriorates….

Statistics show that when you reach the point of needing to adapt, the bathroom is the most common room affected. And, particularly therein, the toilet! But would you want someone to wipe your bottom?

There are now stylish solutions, which can be easily undertaken, with little or no disruption to your new home, before or as you move in: swopping the WC for a shower toilet. It just needs appropriate plumbing- already there for a standard WC- and an appropriate electrical connection(*).

Palma Vita RoomsetClosomat shower toilets can be floor mounted or wall hung. They can be height adjustable- fixed or automatically when you use it. All you do is ‘go’ as normal, then trigger the flushing mechanism. The Closomat simultaneously flushes and washes your derriere, then soothingly dries it with warm air. No need to contort to reach and use toilet tissue. No need to get someone to help.

And, uniquely, the Closomat Palma Vita can be accessorised to accommodate you as needs change- seats, supports, operating mechanisms can all be changed retrospectively. So the investment evolves with you, enabling you to stay in your home for as long as possible.

Explains Robin Tuffley, Closomat marketing manager, “The majority of people who end up receiving homecare have that support to help with with personal care- including going to the loo. If you are going to the cost and trouble of moving, make sure your new home is as fit for life as possible. The chances are you’ll be making some changes anyway- redecorating etc- so think about future-proofing your home at the same time.”
