Need to find a bathroom fast?
Crohn’s and Colitis Canada has a great app called “Go Here” for people with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). Urgency (the need to use the bathroom right away), frequency (having to use the bathroom between five and 20 times per day) and pain can make living with IBD challenging. Having to know where the nearest bathroom is at all times can be stressful, and negotiating access to a bathroom in a business can be tricky and embarrassing.
Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is making bathroom access easier for people with IBD. The “Go Here” app can be downloaded from iTunes, Google Play or BlackBerry World, and contains a map with businesses where bathrooms are accessible, as well as provides an “access card” to present showing medical need to use the bathroom.
Businesses who are welcoming of people with IBD can display a decal in their window, showing they provide access to a bathroom. If you pass a business with the “Go Here” decal, please stop in and thank them, and try to support them!
