A new resource to help carers avoid injuries when moving people in their care has been released by ACC in partnership with Carers NZ and the Home and Community Health Association.
The 36-page booklet offers practical tips and techniques for carers and support workers.
Topics covered include:
- sitting up in bed
- in the shower
- on and off the toilet
- in and out of cars.
If your personal cares are done by a family member or private carer, you may have received a copy in the mail recently.
