Statistics and projections produced by Office for National Statistics (ONS) have long shown that the UK’s population is ageing. Their latest projections show that in 50 years’ time, there are likely to be an additional 8.6 million people aged 65 years and over – a population roughly the size of London.

Getting older can often mean the on-set of arthritis, joint pains and inflammation in the hands, back and hips resulting in simple household tasks becoming more difficult to carry out.  This might mean that something as simple as putting water in your kettle - which when filled is very heavy - can become a difficult task.  You can get around this issue by installing the Alexandra 4-in-1 instant hot water tap which delivers near boiling water at just the simple touch of a button.  What’s more you’ll only use the water that you need rather than overfilling the kettle resulting in energy savings too!

Safety in the home is important at any age but especially so as you get older.  The British Burns Association state that the most commonplace for an elderly person to sustain a burn is in the home with kitchen appliances being the most likely cause.  For complete peace of mind the Alexandra 4-in-1 instant hot water tap has several inbuilt safety features from a cool to touch spout to a hot water delay function so there’s no danger of accidental scalds.

Safe and simple to operate are key features of Alexandria, convenience is another.  No longer will you need to wait for the kettle to boil which is especially useful when you have guests, nor will you need to buy bottled water as the tap dispenses both hot and cold filtered water for better tasting drinks all at the touch of a button.

Available in a stylish chrome or brushed nickel finish the Alexandria would be the great addition to any kitchen.
