Moving and Handling – Free Carer Training
Free training course – Moving and Handling the person you care for:
If you’re a family carer looking after someone with an illness or a disability living in Birmingham, you may need to help them move around. It’s essential that you know about safe moving and handling so you don’t hurt yourself or the person you care for.
Most common injuries carers experience are back injuries. Injuring your back will limit your movement and your ability to care for someone and it could take a long time to recover. Moving someone incorrectly can also damage fragile skin, cause shoulder and neck injuries, increase existing breathing difficulties, or cause bruising or cuts.
