Care Partner Class: Oh My Aching Back!
Lifting & Transferring Safely for Caregivers
Tues, July 19 • 2-3 pm
In-person at Trailside
Caring for someone who requires assistance to safely get in and out of bed or a chair, use the restroom or walk can put your back in jeopardy. It is easier to prevent a back injury than to fix one. Attend “Oh My Aching Back!” to learn how to protect your back while more safely assisting someone under your care. We will also practice using a gait belt, learn ways to transfer someone to a chair, bed or bath tub, and review how to use assistive devices, such as canes and wheel chairs.
Reserve your spot below or by calling 989-633-3700! Online registration is available up until 2 hours prior to the program start time. If you are attempting to register less than 2 hours prior, please call 989-633-3700 for assistance.
*For all caregiver classes, if you are caring for another person and are not previously registered with Senior Services as a caregiver, please plan for a few extra minutes on the phone for registration or to arrive 15 minutes early to fill out a brief form. Call 633-3700 to register. Respite scholarships may be available. If requesting respite care, notify when registering.
