Sounds like you may be suffering from a low flow toilet that has a poor
design as most did when first implemented and some do now?
If that is the case you may want to replace it with one of the much
better performing models that are available.
Or anything new.
Dad was forgetting stuff at a prodigious rate. I don't know whether your
relative is following the same track but little by little, things just
slipped away from him but no new information was retained. I can only
imagine how upset a bidet would have made him because he did seem to take
comfort in the routine of things. Even if we told him about it and showed
him how it worked, odds are he would have had a heart attack, a stroke or
fallen off the toilet and fractured his skull when the water jet hit his
FWIW, I had to plunge the toilet twice since this thread began and I can
only wonder what someone with severe Alzheimer's would react to a plugged
toilet. It's obvious - they would just flush again thinking/hoping/??? that
it would clear on the second flush.
Have you "trimmed" the toilet valve yet? I hope the reduced flow solution
works out for you. My dad passed before things got substantially

remembering the past and considering what the future holds in store.
