Oh My Aching Back: Lifting and Transferring Safely

Thurs, Aug 27 • 1-2:30 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 bathtub, and review the use of assistive devices, such as canes and wheelchairs.

Call 633-3700 or register below to reserve your spot!

Our classes will practice physical distancing and we’re asking you to please call to cancel your registration if you become sick. The safety and health of our instructors and our participants are very important to us and we look forward to seeing you all in person soon!
