The latest report on the delivery of home adaptation provision maintains ‘the overarching aim’ is for it to be accessible and timely.
Service providers can achieve this by using suitable suppliers, according to an industry supplier.
Closomat is a provider of accessible bathroom and toilet solutions and offers a package designed to ensures professional execution of a bathroom adaptation and its ongoing, long-term performance.
Closomat manufactures the leading wash and dry toilets. It also supplies a range of additional bathroom fixtures that enable people to continue to live independently and more safely in their home.
The company offers a complete project management service, covering survey to install and commissioning. Once the assistive technology is installed, Closomat can provide ongoing service and maintenance as required.
Robin Tuffley, Closomat’s marketing manager, said the report, Centre for Ageing Better Adapting for Ageing: Good Practice & Innovation in Home Adaptations, maintains that retrofitting will continue to have a “major impact” on accessible homes.
“It stresses the importance of ‘added value’ services, and creation of a culture of continuous improvement. The report also cites people’s desire for good design.
“All those boxes are ticked by the service we provide. Bear in mind, the bathroom is the most common room to be adapted, and the toilet the most frequent fixture therein to be addressed.
“It makes sense, and is good practice, therefore, to use the expertise of the market leader, that brings with it a reputation for quality and reliability, in product and service. It’s about peace of mind, for all involved, for as long as the adaptation is needed.”
