Those living with a neurological condition are affected in so many ways; reduced movement, the need for extra assistance or the newfound difficulty in carrying out everyday tasks. Those who are perhaps going through neurorehabilitation may need an extra set of hands at home, or whilst they are out, to assist them with their needs.
Many neurological conditions can result in lifelong disabilities due to their effects on the brain and nervous system. Some, like Cerebral Palsy, can be present from birth, while others such as Parkinson’s Disease can develop later on in life. No matter at what age the individual experiences the effects of a neurological condition, their care will likely include healthcare professionals to improve their speech, communication, movement and more. Many people with neurological disorders will also be wheelchair users and need assistance with day to day care, such as visiting the bathroom.
There are a number of ways in which we, as a country can make changes to establishments in order to make them more accessible and allow those living with a neurological condition to feel more included in daily life.
Changing Places facilities offer that inclusion and accessibility to those who need it most.
No matter what stage of life a person is, or at what stage of their recovery journey they are at, Changing Places facilities offer a safe, hygienic and dignified solution for people to go to the bathroom – particularly those that struggle with mobility, or are wheelchair users.
With specialised equipment such as adult sized changing benches and a hoist, Changing Places units can ensure that those living with a neurological condition feel included and cared for, whether it be in their own home or in their local establishments.
More and more businesses are becoming aware of the importance of Changing Places toilets and how they can make their venues more inclusive and accessible for all.
Including Changing Places facilities in your business can contribute to the ever-important neurological care that so many people up and down the UK require. If an individual needs additional care from a carer or family member, especially when using the toilet or changing, Changing Places offers adequate space for the individual to maintain their dignity whilst receiving the appropriate care from other people.
At RISE, we pride ourselves on offering both modular Changing Places facilities as well as home adaptations, making facilities more accessible for a range of individuals, including those living with a neurological condition.
