January 9, 2009, Newsletter Issue #149: Unisex Bathrooms Benefit Elderly

Tip of the Week

If you operate a business or office that serves elderly persons, consider installing a family restroom or unisex bathroom. Elderly persons may be accompanied by opposite-sex partners or adult children and they may need assistance in using a public restroom. A unisex option, perhaps in addition to standard menís and womenís restrooms, lets a woman help her elderly father without having to use a strictly menís restroom, for example, and your business gets credit for knowing your audience.

P.S. Donít forget the handicap grab bars for the toilets, which also help elderly persons.
