Changing Concepts – Space To Change

Product Benefits

  • Penninsular WC
  • Swing Basin
  • Fold Away Bench
  • Full Hoist Coverage

People who are unable to transfer independently or have no sitting balance need additional facilities such as an overhead track hoist to transfer between their wheelchair, the WC and an adult sized changing bench. Many people with profound and multiple learning disabilities are doubly incontinent and have total dependency on their care assistants for their personal care needs.

It’s not always possible to find sufficient space to have the recommended 4x3m room layout. This leaves building managers with the problem of either providing no suitable facility for people who need to change lying down or to design a compromise which can still achieve the objectives set out in Changing Places. The room layout for Space to Change shows one possible flexible solution.

Space to change with Hoist (374)

The range of people who might use CP toilets includes:

  • people with conditions that may affect their movement, including cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease, acquired brain injury
  • people with profound and multiple learning disabilities
  • people with head injuries or severe spinal injuries
  • elderly and less able people who require assistance
  • people living with stroke
  • ex-service personnel

They need access to facilities where they can be changed with dignity and where assistants are able to use a hoist and other equipment to provide appropriate and safe care.
