My brother is getting married in France in August and I’ve got a specialist travel agent sorting it all out for me. However, he’s having problems finding appropriate care, so I’ve suggested to him that it might be easier to arrange if he just sorts carers to get me in and out of bed, showered, dressed etc.
I was just wondering what anyone else does when they need to go to the loo? The reception is being held in a private house with no disabled facilities, and carers aren’t allowed to lift anyway, so even if they were around all day they couldn’t help me onto the loo. At home I have hand grabs in strategic places so I can transfer myself to the loo. If I go out at home I use a pad, but in France I could be out for 9-10 hours so I’d need to change a pad anyway while I’m out. I don’t use a catheter. I’m travelling on my own with my two sons (11 & 14).
Any advice gratefully received.
