Use Our Loo

Finding a toilet in any town can be challenging but if you live with dementia it can be much more of a problem. However in Ferndown a number of businesses have joined the ‘Use our Loo’ scheme as part of an Ferndown  initiative to become a dementia friendly town.

The aim is to understand what it might be like to live with dementia and turn that understanding into action thus making life a little bit easier or services a bit more accessible to someone living with dementia.

To date in Ferndown Costa Coffee, The Ferndown Library, Ferndown British Legion, the Barrington, The Beacon Café (Saint Mary’s Church), Nightjar public house and KFC on Ringwood Road have joined the ‘Use Our Loo’ scheme.
