Moving and Handling

This workshop is currently suspended due to Covid-19

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.

“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.

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

“I have been very impressed with Geraldine’s caring attitude, my dad thinks she is wonderful. I can now visit my parents as a daughter, rather than a carer.”
