Moving and Handling for Personal Assistants
Disabled living offer half day training sessions for up to 6 personal assistants.
The training takes place in the home of the person being cared for so it can be tailored specifically to that person’s environment, needs and equipment. Delivered at a time to suit you we can usually be flexible with times and dates of training.
All employers are required by law to provide training for all employees.
Who are the people employed?
They may be professional healthcare workers who have knowledge of moving and handling; they may be complete novices who have never had any formal training at all.
We encourage the person being cared for to be involved in the training if they wish to be. This encourages inclusion and a person centred approach. The feedback we have received form these courses has been very positive with delegates stating they have felt more knowledgeable and safer whilst caring for the person.
