How to Care for your Back and Body

October 18, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm AEDT

Free

Join us for this interactive and practical session by a Physiotherapist from Trinity Private Physio.

Learn how to look after your body when using it for any carer manual handling task such as, getting someone in and out of bed; off the floor; in and out of a car; from a chair; into a wheelchair; and tips and tools on mobility aids, walking sticks, and frames etc. Learn what to look for when buying a product and how to use this safely to save yourself pain, serious injury, money and time.

This session will include information on ‘good posture’, back care and easy stretches that can be completed at home with handouts provided.

To attend this session, participants will be forwarded a brief questionnaire for completion prior to the session. This will assist in making the presentation specific to carer needs in attendance. This will be emailed to carers 1-2 weeks in advance.

This session is an information session only. Note – Carers ACT does not endorse this organisation or the information outlined. Cares are encouraged to seek further information with your own practitioners.

Registration is essential through the link below. If a carer is unable to book online, please contact Carers ACT on 6296 9982 or by emailing rsvp@carersact.org.au
