Dignity, support and care

Poor support services for toileting

A 26 year old woman wakes up every morning having wet or soiled her bed as the overnight toileting service has been withdrawn. The service was never ideally placed to promote Independent Living in the first place. The woman could only go to the toilet 'to order' when someone came in to help her. Care and support services are not always designed to promote the principles of independent living.
