On Friday, the office team successfully passed their train the trainer Moving & Handling course.
We learnt standard techniques as well as new equipment that is used to maintain independence for clients. We were made aware of some amazing tips and tricks to ensure we can avoid any manual handling when it is not needed, also we learnt new ways to verbally persuade clients to do as much as they can themselves and offer support.
The trainer showed us innovative new equipment so that we can correctly advise our client base if they may need any extra assistance to mobilise.
We feel its important to participate to ensure that we can empathise with any clients that may need this equipment to stay at home.
We all had a great day and really felt that it was beneficial to all.
