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.
Find out more about the Moving & Handling service here – including how to get in touch.
We have many videos explaining the techniques, which the team can share with you. Here are some key moves:
