How to contact this service

Description

Unlike standard disabled toilets, 'Changing Places' toilets meet the needs of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) or physical disabilities (such as spinal injuries, muscle-wasting conditions, and multiple sclerosis). They feature:

  • A height-adjustable adult-sized changing bench
  • A tracking hoist system (or mobile hoist)
  • Enough space for the disabled person and up to two carers
  • A centrally-placed toilet with room either side for carers
  • A screen or curtain to allow privacy
  • A wide tear-off paper roll to cover the bench
  • A large waste bin for disposable pads
  • A non-slip floor
