It's essential to know about safe moving and handling so you don't hurt yourself or the person you look after. The most common injuries carers experience are back injuries which limits movement, limits the ability to care for someone and can take a long time to recover. Lifting someone incorrectly can also damage fragile skin, cause shoulder and neck injuries, increase existing breathing difficulties, or cause bruising or cuts. Join us with Moving and Handling specialist Colin Hanley who will give you confidence to help someone move or transfer safely. 

Joining online is simple. All you need to do is book a place and we will email you a link that you need to click at the relevant time and date (you might need to check your spam and junk mail folder). All you need is access to the internet, a phone, laptop, tablet or computer with a camera and microphone (most laptops and phones have this built in now).

 

Please be aware that these sessions are only available to carers who are currently registered with us. If you haven't already registered with us and are a carer please be aware that we will take your booking as an indication that you would like to be registered with us and someone will be in touch with you for further information.
