Moving & Handling for Carers
Sat 22 April 2017, 11:00 – 12:00 BST
Have you found yourself acting as a carer for a family member or friend? Does this involve you physically moving them from one position to another, without assistance or training? Our friendly Occupational Therapist Hazel is here to help! Hazel is hosting a workshop in our Bristol store to provide carers with training on best practice for moving and handling. Key areas will include...
the basic principles of minimal handling to reduce strain/injury to the carer and the cared for
tips and techniques to aid lying to sitting, and sitting to standing
Q&A session - trouble shooting and advice for specific problems or queries
This is designed to be an informal session with plenty of opportunities to ask questions and share experiences.
Refreshments will be provided.
