Last week Premiere Healthcare’s specialist seating assessor Annabell Thomas supported Cath Harris and Rachel Gillet of the Community Resource Team at their Posture Management Training at April Court Care Home in Swansea. The aim of this Premiere Healthcare training, was to build and develop the carers skills in providing good posture management with simple tools, which help to prevent larger scale problems occurring later down the line.
Premiere Healthcare loaned a set of Askle Positioning Aids as part of this training. The Askle range of Positioning Aids feature high quality ergonomically designed positioning aids and cushions to aid the support and comfortable positioning of users in beds and chairs. To view the full range of Askle Positioning Aids available at Premiere Healthcare, please click here to visit the Mattresses section of our website.
This training was part of a pilot scheme to help support staff at ground level. The feedback received was hugely positive and the training was enjoyed by everyone involved. Premiere Healthcare hope to role this training out throughout Swansea Care Homes, so if you are interested in organising Annabell to visit you and provide this FREE training to your group, please call 01684 297818 to talk to one of our friendly and knowledgeable office support team who will be able to book this in for you.
In addition to the training provision, Annabell and Premiere Healthcare’s other Seating Assessors are all able to offer a free, no obligation assessment service for positioning aids, to help support people in lying. To book in an assessment for your service user today, please call 01684 297818 – we look forward to hearing from you.
