When purchasing a bidet seat, there are some additional items the elderly and disabled should think about.  Below are some of the additional items to think about when looking for the best bidet toilet seat for the elderly and disabled.

 

Our recommended seats for the elderly and disabled

 

Top Pick: Bio Bidet A8 Serenity

Price: $549

(Contact us for better Pricing)

Pros:

Cons:

You Might Choose This Seat If:

  • Dual sided remote
  • Great water flow
  • Turbo speed dryer
  • User presets
  • Your loved one needs the simplest remote possible
  • You'd like to completely remove the need to wipe

Why the Bio Bidet A8 is our top pick:

The dual sided remote offers a super simple remote on one side, while providing advanced features on the other side.  Along with this, it offers the ability to save the advanced settings under a user preset button that's located on the front of the remote.  With a single button press, an elderly individual who might get confused with too many choices, can instantly select all their favorite wash settings, which can be configured by you ahead of time.  It's not hard to for them to find this user preset button, as there are only a few buttons on the front of the remote.  Simple, clean, easy cleaning.  The A8 also offers a powerful warm air dryer.  All other seats on the market to date offer one power setting, which tends to take around two minutes to get a good dry.  The A8 offers a turbo dry option, eliminating the need to wait so long for a good dry, and making it finally feasible get a good dry without wiping.  Yes, it does come in elongated on, and it's a bit pricey, but we can offer you great deal, and with all the great features the A8 offers, it might be worth considering upgrading to an elongated toilet for, if you have a round one.

 

Second Place Pick: Bio Bidet BB-1000

Price: $499

(Contact us for better Pricing)

Pros:

 Cons:

 You Might Choose This Seat If:

 
  • Remote with large buttons
  • Great water flow (higher than A8)
  • Less expensive than A8
 
  • No dual sided remote
  • No turbo dry
 
  • Your loved one suffers from incontinence.
  • You're looking for a more affordable bidet

Why the Bio Bidet BB-1000 is our second place pick:

Until the A8 came out, the BB-1000 held first place for our top recommendation for those looking for a good seat for the elderly or disabled, hands down.  There were many reasons we gave it the top slot.  It's large, easy to understand buttons make it easy to operate.  However, because all the buttons are on the front of the remote, we find that it's still a bit harder to use than the A8 remote.  This seat also offers both elongated and round options, meaning it will fit practically any toilet on the market.  It's also got a higher water flow rate than the A8, at 0.32 gallons per minute.  Most seats offer around 0.1 gallons per minute (the A8 offers 0.22 GPM), making the BB-1000 a huge increase over most others on the market.  Those who are caring for loved ones with incontinence will find that the higher water flow goes a long way in helping clean up those "oopsies".  Sure, the dryer isn't as strong, but more water for cleaning?  That's a win!  It's also more affordable, and we can help out with pricing on it, just like our other seats.

 

Other Suggested Products

Bidet Seat Safety Rail (add arms to your bidet seat to aid in sitting and getting up)

Carex bidet toilet seat elevator or riser

 

Bidet Seats with wireless remote controls

There are many different bidet toilet seat control options.  Some of these are easier to use than others, with large wireless remotes.  We recommend a bidet seat with this setup for the elderly.  Using a bidet seat with a large wireless remote reduces the chance that the wrong button gets pressed.

Bidet Seats with aerated wash

Another feature we find helpful in a bidet toilet seats for the elderly is the aerated wash feature.  Aerated wash infuses air bubbles into the spray, making the wash more gentle.  This wash setting is a welcome, relaxing option, and offers comfort to tender skin.

There are a few other features we often see helpful with a bidet toilet seat for the elderly.  Often, getting on and off the toilet seat can be a challenge.  However, there are things that can be done to help.  These additional items can assist the elderly in continuing to use the toilet without assistance.

Bidet Seats with Arms

We often have customers asking for a bidet toilet seat with arms, or a bidet toilet seat with rails or safety rails.  While there are currently no bidet seats that have built in safety rails, or arms, this does not mean that those asking for such requests are out of luck.  When looking for a bidet seat with rails, your best bet will be to find the bidet seat you want to use, and then buy the safety rails separately.  When purchasing a safety rail to use with your bidet seat, there are some important things to keep in mind.  Bidet toilet seats tend be taller near the toilet tank than other toilet seats.  For this reason, many toilet safety rails that rest part of the rail on the space between the tank and the seat may not work with bidet seats.  Toilet seat safety rails that have a built in seat riser also cause problems with bidet seats, due to spacing limitations.  If you're looking for a safety rail that will work with any bidet toilet seat, look no further.  We carry what you need.  View our arms and grab rails selection for details.

Bidet Toilet Seat Risers, or Raised Bidet Toilet Seats

Along the same lines as toilet seat rails, we often get requests for bidet toilet seats with risers, also known as elevators.  A riser makes the toilet seat higher.  This is a great feature for those who have problems lowering themselves onto the toilet seat.  Currently, none of  the bidet seats manufactured have built in risers.  This does not mean that riser can not be used with a bidet seat, but there are some things to be aware of.  While many toilet seat risers will work with bidets, there are some limitations due to spacing and needed hardware.  We currently stock a toilet seat riser recommended by bidet manufacturers.
