Toilet access is a major concern for anyone with inflammatory bowel disease.
Our research has found that while it is very rare for a person with IBD to find themselves in a dire situation to go to the toilet, the stress of worrying about ‘if’ it is going to happen, and ‘if’ they will be able to access a toilet in time consumes every thought and every action they take.
People with Crohn’s and colitis can base many of their decisions, including where they visit, on feeling confident they will have access to toilets if required.
Can't Wait Program
The ‘Can’t Wait’ card is issued to members of CCA who have been formally diagnosed with Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis (IBD) access to a toilet in times of urgency. All cards are registered with CCA, the member’s name and their ID number is printed on the front of the card.
For a complete listing of participating businesses and for more information, visit the Can’t Wait website.
