Access to the Snoezelen Pool requires 1:1 support within arms reach at all times. A second attendant is permitted if needed.
Swimmers with bladder/bowel control issues must wear a pool pant product (ie. Gabby's) that have snug leg gathers under their bathing suit. Please contact the Snoezelen Coordinator or Pool office at 416-425-6220, extension 3713 or 6259 for information on purchasing appropriate swimwear. We also sell them in the pool office. Regular diapers are not allowed in the pool.
When attending your Snoezelen Pool sessions, we ask that you come onto the pool deck no earlier than your scheduled start time. To ensure the safety of everyone using the pool, it is important that the only people on the deck are those who need to be.
Standard pool policy applies which includes the expectation that all individuals entering the water must shower before coming onto the pool deck.
Anyone with hair longer than shoulder length is required to tie it up or wear a swim cap so that it is held above the shoulders.
Family change room facilities are available for those bringing a client or child of the opposite gender over the age of seven. An overhead track system (Hoyer lift) is available on the pool deck and in the family change room. Clients must bring their own sling.
We have a scent-free policy at Holland Bloorview due to clients and staff with chemical sensitivities. Please refrain from wearing perfume in the pool and change room environment.
