Reducing Injury For Caregivers and Family Members

Reducing Injury For Caregivers and Family Members

One of the most common complaints among family members and caregivers is the frequency of injuries, and the chronic aches and pains they experience. Caring for someone with aging issues, chronic conditions, and other special needs is incredibly demanding. It takes a toll both physically and emotionally.

Reneu Health, Inc. recently had the pleasure of working with Windward Life Care to provide one client’s caregiver team with a personalized, hands-on training in proper body mechanics and transfer safety. This client requires significant assistance with transfers and uses specialized lift equipment; ensuring the proper use of this equipment, as well as the safety of the client and caregivers were the goals. Over the course of 2 sessions, we practiced techniques that Home Care Aides apply daily.

Using proper technique is critical for caregivers to avoid injuring themselves and the person they are helping. Following very simple techniques, you will significantly reduce the stress you put on your body while caring for a client or loved one.

To read the blog that Reneu’s own Chris Corpuz wrote for Windward Life Care after the hands-on training, please follow this link.

Reneu Health, Inc. provides at home, one-on-one activity based programs for seniors and special populations. We specialize in both preventive and rehabilitative care. Each program is specifically designed to meet your needs, and is appropriate for all levels of ability. www.reneu-health.com

I was supremely impressed both by his knowledge base and by his willingness to coordinate our plans of treatment so that the patient could maximize his improvement. I have since referred many patients with neurological impairment to Reneu Health. Every single person that I have worked with within the company has been incredibly professional, caring, and knowledgeable.
