Embracing Excellence in Care: Waterloo Care Home’s In-House Moving and Handling Training

At Waterloo Care Home, we are steadfast in our commitment to providing outstanding care to our residents. This dedication is mirrored in the continuous development of our staff, ensuring they are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to deliver care with confidence and compassion. Today marked a significant stride in this ongoing journey as we hosted an In-House Moving and Handling Theory and Practical Training session, expertly led by our qualified Manual Handling Trainer.

A Dual Focus: Training and Team Building

The importance of effective moving and handling techniques cannot be overstated in the context of care. It is essential not only for the safety and comfort of our residents but also for the physical well-being of our staff. Recognising this, the training was meticulously designed to cover both theoretical knowledge and practical skills, providing a comprehensive learning experience.

However, at Waterloo Care Home, we believe that learning should transcend the traditional boundaries of skill acquisition. That’s why our training sessions are also crafted as team-building exercises. By learning together, our staff forge stronger bonds, enhancing teamwork and communication – key components of the harmonious and supportive atmosphere we cherish at our home.
