Moving and Handling
Join our staff at one of our free workshops to learn all about safe moving and handling techniques when caring for elderly people.
This workshop is 6 hours long and lunch and refreshments are provided. The course is made up of theory as well as practical work.
The theory element of the workshop provides a good basis for understanding how to keep ourselves and our loved ones/clients safe when we support them to move. During the practical part of the training you will have a chance to practice some safe moves, under the watchful eye of our experienced trainer.

Bright Care believes in working collaboratively with families to ensure that our clients receive the best possible care and attention. To this end, we have opened up our Companion Carer training workshops to the families and friends of our clients, so that our clients can enjoy consistent and high quality care, and their carers can enjoy peace of mind that they are doing things the right way.
If there is an aspect of elderly care that you would like further information on, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us, as in addition to our practical workshops, each of our offices have reference libraries on various different topics affecting elderly care, and we would be more than happy for you to pop in for a cup of tea, a chat and some advice.
“ Irene who cares for my uncle is an outstanding carer, as was Margaret who cared for my mother. You feel as if the staff genuinely care and have great compassion and professionalism for the situation and the people with whom they work – and that includes the wider family for whom they provide respite”
Mrs Stevens – Milton of Campsie
“We have been extremely happy with the care our elderly family member has received from Bright Care. Carers are dedicated to their clients and take time to listen to them. They make sure that the clients wishes are carried out, for example cooking them food that they enjoy. They communicate regularly with the family which is very reassuring as we live far away”
Mrs J Mills – Glasgow
“Using Bright Care has allowed my mum a daily routine that suits her needs. Staff are punctual and arrive at time requested. They provide a holistic approach to care.”
