Local Greenwood Plumber toilet donation for Cancer Patient.

Local Greenwwod Plumber provides a toilet donation to a cancer patient in need.  Carter’s My Plumber recently installed a new comfort height toilet for a cancer patient who needed better accessibility. The Carter’s were made aware of the need and installed the new toilet in order to assist with the burden of expense. The toilet has maintained her dignity, and ability to support her independence in the bathroom.
Some things in life can be taken for granted until a disabling condition like a fracture, stroke, arthritis or even cancer occurs. Plumbers are able to help in these situations to equip a bathroom to prevent losing independence. There are numerous bathroom assistive devices and special design toilets to help move-ability in the bathroom. These devices help individuals maintain their independence and dignity in the bathroom.

What is the difference of a “Comfort Height?”

The difference between a Comfort Height toilet (which can be referred to as a handicapped toilet) and a regular toilet is a “Comfort Height” toilet has a higher vertical posture. A regular toilet has a posture which is fifteen inches from the floor. Toilets designed for someone who needs more assistance in the bathroom has a posture height of 17 inches from the floor to the top of the seat.Comfort-height-toilet
2 inches may not seem like a big difference, but in fact, an extra two inches in height makes it easier for the person who needs assistance or extremely tall people to get up and down from the toilet. The vertical posture of 2 inches places less pressure on the knee, which is a hinge joint to bend and mobilize. While the main application for these type of toilets may seem like they are for hospitals or businesses with public bathrooms, they actually have a very widespread benefit for homeowners.

Toilet helps Accessibility

If you need assistance and want to live independently, a bathroom that is set up to accommodate your needs can make a huge difference in your quality of life. This is because a toilet that is seventeen inches in height can also be coupled with an assistance railing. When an assistance railing is attached to the adjacent wall, it helps make unassisted living more possible. It allows people who are physically weak be able to use devices to support themselves and maintain their dignity.
Comfort Height Toilets assist flushing by making it easier to push down on the handle being at a higher vertical level. This kind of assistance makes it easier for the person who needs assistance, or may not have full use of their hands to flush the toilet. There are many different options available, and it’s important to have them properly installed by a licensed plumber. To get a proper solution for a bathroom for someone who needs assistance, give us a call for the most up-to-date information. We not only have licensed plumbers on staff, but we have a registered nurse who is also a cancer coach.
