Finding a Public Bathroom for Caregiver and Opposite Gender Parent Can Be Tough
Posted Mar 01 2011 12:00am
Many of us are caregivers for parents of the opposite gender. This can create significant problems when we take our loved one out in public and they need to use a bathroom. Men can't take their mothers into the ladies room. Women can't take their dads into the women's room. Unisex bathrooms are the solution, of course, but they can be scarce and most are set up for toddlers, not elders. Businesses need to take note and provide appropriate bathroom accommodations for elders and caregivers.
