CHANGING PLACES

 

This is the layout as recommended in the BS8300 British Standard.

It’s intended to provide a room with sufficient space to have a person with disabilities and one or two carers to assist in toileting and changing/showering. It has a peninsular toilet, adjustable height accessible washbasin and wall mounted Shower and Changing Bed.

 

A ceiling track hoist which covers the whole room should be provided wherever possible to enable a person to be transferred  conveniently between their wheelchair, the changing bench, WC and washbasin.
