The problem which the bio bidet seeks to address, of course, is the worrisome question of cleaning and wiping one's arse when there is no longer enough strength in the hands and fingers. Roch worried about this from the word 'go', and we talked about it in the early days with the Community Matron and the Hospice nurse. Short term solutions were suggested and I think he felt quite encouraged and comforted. Our stay in Somerset and the use of a 'Clos-O-mat' toilet there last year impressed us with the efficient 'wash 'n dry' function, but the'Clos-O-mat' costs a lot of money. We could have used our grant from the MND Association for it, but it would have accounted for all the money and we couldn't justify that when there were so many other expenses. Instead, the lovely Rachel suggested a bio bidet, which the Local Authority agreed to pay for as essential equipment for Roch. I'm told they are very popular in Japan. You can have a look at it here:
The report from Roch: Not only is his bum washed, it's also polished!
If you visit, you are welcome to use it and test the functions. Ladies, remember, there's even a feminine wash...
