With continuing discussion over care budgets, Clos-o-mat say use of assistive technology could provide a cost-effective long term solution for many.
The company says independence in the toilet can be delivered, for 75p per day.
Robin Tuffley, marketing manager at Clos-o-Mat, commented: “Less than £1 per day is a massive saving on providing a care worker to help someone go to the toilet.
“And how do you even begin to put a price on someone’s feeling of self-worth, independence, and dignity, because they are able to do such an intensely personal and private thing without a stranger’s help?”
The product that aims to deliver this is the Clos-o-Mat Palma Vita wash & dry toilet. Looking like, and capable of being used as, a traditional toilet, the Palma Vita additionally has built-in douching and drying, all easily operated, without any fiddly buttons.
There is no need for manual cleansing by user or care worker. With annual service & maintenance, Clos-o-Mats are proven to last 30+ years.
