Single Carer Handling

We have been providing exciting training for Occupational Therapists, Home Care Providers and Care Homes over the last eight years identifying how to provide better quality care and some times reducing the number of carers required during the process. We have some fabulous products to show you during the training which will improve comfort, dignity and independence. Please let us know if you are interested in finding out more, we would be happy to discuss this with you. 

 

The majority of the training we provide is for larger organisations but we do run a few courses each year for individual carers, Occupational Therapists and Trainers to book individual places to attend.

 

Let us know if you would like more information.
