Are you working in Elder Care, caring for a family member or simply want to be prepared if someone needs your help?
I have a family member whose skin is very delicate, I don't know how to manage it if they have a minor cut.
An elderly person is more susceptible to getting a skin infection, their skin may be much more delicate and thinner it also may heal more slowly. Riverside Cares offers a First Aid training course that is specially designed to support the needs of a person caring for an elder person’s needs.
Can I attend the course with a group of people?
Yes! We can arrange a session in your setting or in one of our training rooms.
Do you offer Safeguarding Sessions for people working in Elder Care
Yes, absolutely. We can arrange sessions for as few as three people and up to 20 people in your setting (larger groups) and in our training rooms (smaller groups).
Help, I need to lift an elderly person without recking my back
We offer a 2 hour Manual Handling course, suitable if you are lifting and carrying
