Videos to help you move the person you care for safely

As a carer, you may have to help the person you care for move, for example, up from bed, or a chair, or into a car. Our Moving & Handling team can advise and train you, just get in touch. Here are videos of some of the key manoevres.

Moving & Handling

It’s important that you can help the person you care for move safely. It’s important that you don’t damage your body (your back especially), or theirs.

Our Moving & Handling team can show you the right, safe, manoeuvres, for common moves like getting in or out of bed, in or out of a chair, and in or out of a car. Some require simple equipment, some don’t.
