Apps for Access in the Community


Phone and Ipad showing apps There are so many Apps being developed all the time; to make everyday life easier to manage and promote independence and safety at home and when out and about. The ILC Occupational Therapists have searched for some that we think could be helpful and you can read about them here. These Apps are produced and maintained by third parties and are included as information not as a recommendation. See our Apps disclaimer.

 

 

Here is an app that we have found that may help:

This helpful app allows the user to plan their day out without the worry of being unable to find a suitable toilet. The nearest accessible toilet can be searched using the current location or a postcode. Pros: Location of toilets are shown on a map, and you can select a toilet to find further information about it, including the address, size of space, how to access, whether there is a hoist and the type of sling required. It tells you whether it meets the full changing spaces specification and if you require a radar key to access. Cons: Needs strong internet signal. The toilets are displayed on the map using colour coded pins signalling different types of toilets – you would need to use the app regularly to remember what each PIN stands for or flick between the index and map on the app.
