We have had some clients jump at first when using their bidet but we found that turning the water pressure down and making sure the temperature is set to warm, it minimizes the 'surprise'! My favorite is the Alpha JX bidet seat by Clear Water Bidets.

In North America bidets attached to the toilet are much more popular than freestanding bidets are There are many brands, from simple to luxury. Kohler has models that offer multiple settings for different users, adjustable water temperature and warm air dry. If you use you-tube there are advertisement videos that show how they work. I wish there was a show room where you could actually try some out! LOL

I read everything, now I am confused. Is it possible to get a bidet that will go on a toilet already installed in the house. We don't have room in either bathroom to install a separate bidet.

The Bio Bidet is a toilet seat,not a complete bidet.

Llamalover, cultures have interesting differences. The Italians manage to keep very clean and use lots less water. Thus the bidet. And the bidet is NOT a toilet. You can wash feet, socks, lingerie, anything else in it. It cleans easily since it has its own water source, so multiuse makes sense...including washing the elderly or even yourself!

I'm not sure if a bidet would be better for my mom who is 90 and who does often soil her disposable underwater. Usually I will give her flushable wet wipes for minor clean ups but if she has a huge accident, where she gets poop on her legs, etc., I will get her into the shower and wash her from the waist down. Thankfully she knows when she needs a wash down and willingly allows me to get her into the shower. So far using wet wipes along with toilet paper is doing the job. I just wonder if a bidet would help as she gets older and can't wipe herself well.

I'm curious whether the bidet toilet attachments are really able to help with cleanup after they have soiled their pull ups, or if they are strictly for aiding with those who can't wipe anymore?

I just got a Bio Bidet installed and it is wonderful. I bought it through Woot website, shipped by Amazon. #600 without remote was 279.00, 5.00 shipping. This week they had a model 300, I think, with remote for 379.00 I do a lot of shopping there.

Wamnanealz,

Can't throw out the idea just because it didn't work for you.

You can adjust the temperature of the water and the seat.

Also, it is a surprise to my mom every time the water comes on. I just stand there with my hand on her shoulder and make her sit there so she won't jump up during the whole cycle.

Nothing wrong with a little reinforcement if you know what I mean.

Hi Wamnanelalz, Thanks for the post. I could see my 90 year old father doing what your husband does. He does not even want to wear pull ups and poops on the floor instead and keeps washing his pants daily because pull ups are too uncomfortable for him. It is only good if the person is co-operative.

Not so fast! I bought a really nice one last summer when I renovated the bathroom! Along with all the other amenities for older patients......handrails, automatic thermostat so the person never gets burned, always has the same temp, hand spray shower for hosing down, etc. Well the bidet that you place on top of the toilet is wonderful. Cost $600. The only problem. My husband will not use it! The moment the water comes out, he jumps up and makes a mess everywhere. A waste of money for me. Of course I can use it. I do not enjoy the heated seat in the summer. Makes me too hot. So I turned it off for summer. "It does have the remote control which is handy! But for him, it isn't helping.

If my husband and I ever move to a 55 or above housing I will for sure make sure that we get one. Never would have pasted my mind before this question was posted.

This is a great idea because my 90 year old parents are having major problems now in this area. They both have dementia and live in the same house since 1985. Here is my question. Do U.S. Nursing homes have them and if not why not? They can certainly afford to put them in as well as assisted living can afford to put them in. Even communities that are 55 and above should have them as a standard feature in the homes they sell.

I bought a bio bidet for my dementia mom. It was a suggestion from a friend of mine.
Do it!
My mom's hygiene was getting worse. Poop in her depends, would not want to change them, didn't "clean" herself well etc.
Being a son, there are some hard things to do with your mom and when my wife isn't around the bidet was a Godsend.
I would sit her on the bidet and wash, rinse, and air dry!
I would recommend one with a remote control.
You can buy at Home depot, menard's, etc. sits right on top of your existing toilet.
I bought a new toilet at the same time in order to best accommodate the bidet.
Get a plumber to install and if necessary and electrician.

Should be great. We lived with a bidet in Europe for 8 years. Why in the world haven't they caught on here? I believe it's because Europeans are so thrifty with their water, compared to us wasteful Americans who tend to shower every day. At any rate, wish we had put one in when we built our house. Excellent for washing feet as well as the intended use!
