Does your care recipient need help getting up from a chair or transitioning from place to place? Is this task new and difficult for you? Is this something that you may be struggling with? Sometimes moving and providing physical support to your care recipient can be challenging. Caregivers may not realize that they can risk their own physical health while doing their best to negotiate these new tasks. Join us to learn more about:
- Acknowledging the emotional challenges that accompany this part of the role
- Tips for moving your care recipient safely
- A discussion on in-home safety devices that could support you
- Lived caregivers’ experiences
