Adult Change Rooms in Shopping Centres and Govt Buildings

Problem:
There are people with disability who use continence products, and are unable to sit on a toilet. Providing a “disabled access” toilet just doesn’t cut it for some people. I have a right to use toilet facilities just like “normal” people, when I’m shopping, attending a show at Riverside Theatres, at the movies, and so on.

Solution:
Westpoint Blacktown shopping centre has an adult change room where I can be transferred onto an adjustable change table using a ceiling hoist. This is the best thing ever! I can go to Westpoint, knowing my carer can attend to my personal care, then I continue with my shopping like everyone else in the community.
