I have to admit a mistake I made and I really apologize for it. If I make one I try not to hide it or gloss over it and so I wanted to tell everyone up front that for whatever reason possessed me the day I signed up for this review, I just did not see or read far enough down to know this was for "potty training". I actually wanted to review them because my best friend and neighbor who has to take care of her mother, who has dementia, needed some help with the toilet issue. I got them so that when they come over to visit I have something to put on the toilet to help her know where to go if that makes any sense to you.
As you know, people with dementia or alzheimer's really don't know for sure when they have to go. My friend has started out many a day and have to turn around and come home because her mother used the bathroom in her clothes. I wish I could do more for her but with all of my issues, I am not much help, except when I can find things to review that might help her and this was one of those that I thought it was worth a shot anyway. At least at home it would give them both some peace of mind knowing she was hitting the right spot.
So, while these were potty training disposable toilet seat covers for teaching children, we used them to try and help our elderly friend with her bathroom issues. For the most part, it was a success so I hope that if you have an elderly person in your care, these make great tools in helping them also. So, they are not just for children, they can be used for the elderly and give them a little more dignity in their everyday lives.
These were made from a company called PottyCover and because they are so nicely and brightly covered with all sorts of color, I think they helped my friend and her mother, because of the colors she knew not to go outside of the colors. We tried to simplify it as much as we could and she actually got a little kick out of them. She thought I had decorated my bathroom and that those were new lids of some sort. We decided to leave it at that.
Here are the some of the benefits:
1. Provides a waterproof barrier between the toilet & child (elderly)
2. Oversized design provides maximum coverage by covering the sides and the front of the toilet
3. Double layered with soft woven fabric on top, coated with a layer of plastic on the bottom to keep germs and wetness away
4. Protects children and adults from germs on public toilets
5. Ideal for both boys and girls, (also elderly) who are old enought to sit on the toilet
6. Stays on the toilet without any messy adhesive strips
7. Works great with portable potty seats for maximum protection & comfort
8. Each PottyCover is individually packaged in a small easy to carry bag
You can buy these on Amazon, BedBath and Beyond, BuyBuyBaby and eBay and you and you can check out PottyCover's website to find out which stores in your area carry them if you would prefer to go and get them yourself. Wow, I even found out that they are sold in Japan and the United Kingdom & Ireland along with Canada! So, it looks like they are in alot of countries and hopefully, I hope this helps not only those of you with children but also those caring for the elderly with dementia & alzheimer's.
