Training Caring Hands is an organisation providing specialist physiotherapist-led training for healthcare workers in a diverse range of areas.

 

Our aim is to deliver the highest standard of training courses for healthcare workers, enabling them to develop the skills and knowledge they need to provide excellent patient care.

 

Whilst we have a core range of areas covered in each course, we  adapt and tailor each individual course to meet the training needs of your particular organisation.

 

The training we offer develops skillful handling through a high practical emphasis within the course, enabling  people being cared for to be as  active and independent as they would like to be whilst making the course members much more confident in the support they can provide.

 

Our training provides staff with the awareness and skills to ensure good positioning for  the people they care for, thus protecting body shape and avoiding choking, to name just two of numerous health  benefits.

 

The ethos of the training is to build and develop around what works in practice, rather than focusing on gaps and inadequacies. All the training is underpinned by strong  person centred care principles, fostering good relationships between the staff and the people they care for.

 

We can help organisations  comply with CQC regulations and guidelines, as well as the Skills for Health National Minimum Training Standards and Code of Conduct for Healthcare Workers.
