What is a Hygiene Room toilet facility?

A Hygiene Room, modelled on the Changing Places Toilet specification, requires more space than a standard accessible toilet, providing enough room for the extra equipment needed, and room for up to two carers to provide assistance when necessary.

Typically, you will find the following equipment in these facilities

  • Overhead room coverage hoist system
  • Height adjustable changing bench
  • Peninsular toilet
  • Privacy screen

Hygiene rooms allow children and young people with disabilities to live their best lives and promote independence, hygiene and dignity.

Survey

We always insist on carrying out a free of charge site survey to absolutely ensure that everything is correct and to identify any potential problems. We often recommend adjustments or enhancements at this stage and in some cases we spot issues which help to avoid problems further into the process.

Once everything is installed and ready to use, we can provide support and training to staff to ensure they are confident in the operation of the equipment, and are then able to provide support to those in their care. We can also provide on-going servicing and maintenance of the equipment to ensure it continues to support children and young people for years to come.
