Hi, an OT came to do an assessment of my wet room facilties recently. This occured because when a chap came from the Housing Adaptations unit, to sign off my ceiling hoist, he asked to use our loo.
When he came out, he said
How on earth do you cope in that room? I asked what he meant.
he referred to the proximity of the loo next to the wall. i said it was a squeeze to get my commode over the loo and that I constantly struggled and banged myself.
He also said that the flooring and drain for the shower looked inadequate. I had to agree, as water goes into the hallway and resembles Niagara Falls sometimes!.
So he referred me for the assessment.
Anyroad, the OT was in agreement and has recommended that I have a new close-o-mat loo, as i have difficulty cleaning myself up and have to get carers and hubby to do it…no dignity, is there? She also says the flooring should be re-done with a more suitable drainage system.
Does anyone use a close-o-mat loo and if so, what do you think to it?
