Know Where To Find What You Want (Restrooms, Parking Distance, Incline, Water/Snacks)

Sarah Jenkins

Going to a new place or an event you’ve never been to, can be challenging if you struggle with continence. Not only do you need to consider the normal variables when you’re on the way, like weather and parking, but once you get there you might want to be alert to restrooms, exits, vending machines, and customer service personnel.

Here’s our best advice:

  • Check out the location’s website and see if the page offers a web tour so you can get a lay of the land
  • Call ahead and ask for the manager. Ask them to spend five minutes going over the basic locations of your highest need items
  • Arrive an additional 15 minutes early and give yourself your own tour
  • Introduce yourself to staff and ask them about any quirks or maintenance that may cause areas of need to be closed or filed off

At the end of the day, you’re just avoiding surprises. Everyone has similar needs when they go out to new places, so be proactive about ways you can improve your experience in a new place.
