Responsive is a home health agency committed to our clients’ wellness and supporting our incredible staff of caregivers. Through our education and training programs we offer our caregivers and office staff important new techniques to keep safety a priority. This past month, Responsive Home Care, providers of home health services of Broward County hosted four Body Mechanic In-services to train our caregivers and office staff on proper transferring and lifting techniques. These techniques are a pivotal aspect to maintain health and safety for both clients and caregivers.
There was a range of topics discussed in the Body Mechanics In-service. The topics spanned from assisting clients in and out of their wheelchair to maintaining posture and flexibility while on the job. Nerly, Responsive’s RN Case Manager, facilitated the In-service and utilized hands on training to strengthen the learning process. Each caregiver earns two hours of Continued Education upon the completion of the In-service. If you need information about proper Body Mechanics feel free to give us a call at 954-486-6440 or email us atAndrew@ResponsiveHomeHealth.com.
This month we look forward to hosting our First Aid and Safety In-services for our caregivers.
