2nd July 2018Category: Adult Carers
Our next FREE "Carers Get Together's" are taking place this month and will be focusing on Back Care
Lifting and carrying are an everyday part of life for many carers and for some this can lead to significant back pain and problems. You may often find yourself lifting and moving the person you care for, heavy objects and furniture and cumbersome wheelchairs or equipment, often without support and without giving any thought to your own safety.
These sessions will provide information and support to help you to keep YOUR back safe. The Cumbria Occupational Therapy Team will be sharing their tips for safe moving and handling techniques.

When - Wednesday 18th July from 10.30am to 12.30pm (followed by lunch)

When - Thursday 26th July from 10.30am to 12.30pm (followed by lunch)
