Which Toilet for Elderly?

denali2007December 17, 2012

My mom is 88 years old and still living in her own home. The toilet needs to be replaced and she would like to get a high ADA toilet. What do you recommend? It does not need to be expensive.
Thanks in advance.

Is comfort height and ada height the same? If so, we have two comfort height American Standards champions.

Height makes it easier to get up (hence raised toilet seats), but she may also need a toilet safety frame if she has problems getting up from a seated position. They are not expensive and provide a stable set of arms to grab/push on. These are after market things, you can get whatever toilet you want then add a safety frame if needed.

See the link below. Inax and Toto are the world leaders both in leading-edge technology and in quality control; you will not go wrong choosing any Inax or Toto toilet.

Here is a link that might be useful: Inax Rio Grande
