If you regularly lift or move someone, it's best to get training or have someone demonstrate the correct techniques to avoid injury to yourself or the person you care for.
The GP, district nurse or occupational therapist can give information about suitable equipment to help you care.
A Carer's assessment from social services can help you plan what support you need. Your local Citizen's Advice can guide what practical and financial support you can access. Please see our service directory for contact details.
