Stourbridge supermarket installs high-tech disabled changing facility
Updated 12:31pm Friday 4th April 2014 in News
STOURBRIDGE'S Tesco store has become the second supermarket in the country to install a new changing facility for customers with disabilities.
The Changing Places facility is designed for users who need additional space and lifting assistance when using the toilet and changing.
Users can now benefit from a ceiling hoist, height adjustable changing bench, assisted sink, grab rails and a privacy screen.
A Changing Places Consortium spokesman said: “Without these facilities, families have to change the person they care for on a cramped and dirty toilet floor.
"The alternative is to limit outings to a few short hours or to not go out at all.”
