    Hi Pink,

    I agree that the best solution is to buy or hire a chemical toilet and use a room at the venue which will take the hoist. Most important is that you find a solution which is safe for you.

    Hi Pink,

    I had a thought that perhaps hiring a portable disabled toilet unit might work for you. These are a few websites I found when I searched on Google (you might need to hire a hoist separately):-

    https://www.toilets.co.uk/toilet-hire/disabled-toilets/

    http://www.site-equip.co.uk/event/disabled-toilet-hire

    https://www.andyloos.co.uk/product/l...d-toilet-unit/

    http://www.jaksjons.co.uk/event-toilets-hire/

    https://www.euroloo.com/toilet-hire/...SAAEgK-IvD_BwE

    There's probably other websites, but just thought I'd post links to some, in case you are interested.

    Yes, I agree - sourcing suitable toilet facilities can be a right pain in the butt sometimes! I hope something can get sorted out for you soon, so that it's something you no longer need to worry about.

    Love Kayleigh x

    Thank you for researching kayleigh. The toilet will jave to be big enough for a hoist to go over. Ots getting to the point where I really don't want to go. Its not how i imagined my eldest son's wedding would be.

    I'm sorry to hear that it is so difficult to get suitable facilities - I do hope that there will be a room at the venue you can use. I was hoping that a hoist would fit into one of the portable units - sorry about that!

    Please don't not go Pink, although I completely understand how stressed you are about it

    If you were to get a private room, you could bring one of those portable camping loos if it fitted under the commode - a glorified bag on a stand really!

    An elderly relative of mine who had to use a commode after an operation, used to put a baby's nappy in the commode basin so people wouldn't hear her pee etc. and nappy and contents were easily disposed of!

    I really hope you find a workable solution Pink.

    Love Ellie.

    Oh Pink, I too really understand how you feel. You have to be safe and comfortable and its such a shame you cant look forward to seeing your son married and worry about normal things like hats and outfits. Its heartbreaking!

    I don't know if this will help at all but .. our son got married last year and when they booked the venue they asked us to check out the disabled toilet to see if it was suitable. It was at the time but I realised before the wedding that it was going to be too small for my wheelchair, Walker and hubby to help. Very silly of me not to think of progression!
    Between us we found a nearby adult education centre with a large disabled toilet. I can still transfer from my wheelchair to the toilet using my Walker but it did have a hoist. They were so accommodating, when we explained and they were happy to stay open although we did insist on paying. It did mean a walk down the road in my wheelchair but it was fine. It's when you can't use the loo you really need to! We had also found a nearby restaurant with really good disabled facilities and they were happy for us to use them too if we had needed to.

    It obviously depends on where your sons wedding is and if there is anywhere nearby but it would be so upsetting for you to miss the wedding. I really hope there is an answer that youre happy with so you can enjoy the day.

    I was so worried about ramps, toilets transfers etc but when it came to it I forgot all about that because they were so happy. Lots of tears but happy tears !

    Big hugs to you.
    Love Debbie x
