Building on many years of working with clients with complex manual handling needs, ACM also has an established specialist manual handling team who are able to offer advice, assessment and training to clients, families and support staff.
ACM recently worked with Karen, her family and her support workers to ensure that her transfers are completed safely and comfortably, and that all her wishes are respected, where possible.
Karen said “I liked the way the Adviser listened to what was important to me. I realised I could do more to help my carers and so changes were made to how they help me.”
ACM provided a written plan for the team to follow to ensure that Karen benefits from consistent and correct assistance at all times.
The team leader said “Having the group session specific to our client means we all know what is best practice.”
