Multi-generational living? Don’t forget the toilet
Written by Angela May Published: 1 October 2019
One issue not generally discussed when talking about multi-generational households is the bathroom- access to, and use of.
It’s a growing problem for the households.
There has been a 46% rise in multi-generational households in less than a decade(1). It is set to continue: some 60% of people would consider living in a multi-generational household, according to a survey by Sarah Beenie’s estate agency Tepilo. Set alongside that the fact that, on average, we go to the toilet 8 times a day. Multiply that by each resident, and you have a very busy room! But each generation has different needs- 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 reticent 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- 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.
