Safe moves and transfers, with physiotherapist Ellen van Dijken.
Caring for others comes with its share of hard work. This can involve physical work like transferring, pulling, pushing wheelchairs, carrying, and lifting. If not done properly, there can be risks for those being moved and their supporters. Injuries can be sustained easily. Some happen suddenly, like a fall, while others, like strains, can develop gradually.
It is important we are aware of our actions and how we can do things safely to protect ourselves and those we are supporting.
