Dementia and stoma-friendly toilets at Sainsbury's
With more than 47 million people around the world affected by dementia and 10 million new diagnoses each year, Sainsbury is setting the bar with the update of their store toilets.
Stores across the UK are set for the refurbishment to making them dementia friendly. The refurbishment will see ‘way out’ signs displayed on doors to help people with dementia find the exit and customers living with a stoma can expect cubicles to be fitted with shelves and hooks.
Many people living with difficult illnesses such as Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and Bowl Cancer; people with these conditions often need a stoma bag which collects bodily waste through an opening made in the side of the abdomen.
Its safe to say that whether you are suffering from dementia or any of the latter conditions, weekly tasks are hard enough with out getting lost in a cubicle or having to change a stoma on the floor.
The inclusive toilets will be installed in all Sainsburys stores by March 2018.
