24-hour Postural Care Family Course
September 15 @ 1:00 pm - October 13 @ 8:00 pm| £40
Each learner is expected to do around 2 hours work weekly using the pre-recorded training videos and a downloadable workbook which are accessed via a password protected webpage. There will be a hosted live event on Zoom once you have received the course content (15th September at 1pm or 7.30pm) and then 4 weeks later (13th October at 1pm or 7.30pm). These sessions provide an opportunity to ask questions, get assistance and meet other families delivering hands on postural care. There will be an additional two weeks to complete the workbook following the final live event.
Postural care training is most powerful in the hands of the people delivering it – the families of those with limited movement. We only get one body and yet people with complex disabilities don’t always get the ‘annual service’ afforded the equipment they use. Posture Positive report 2020 found training is a key aspect to developing resilient and robust 24-hour postural care for people with complex needs. The key ingredients to excellence in postural care comes in equipping the people delivering hands on care with knowledge and confidence.
This course is by families and for families. Whether you are a sibling, parent, husband or guardian supporting someone with complex needs, this training provides knowledge, skills and confidence to provide excellence in postural care.
This course includes:
- Why is postural care a big deal?
- Spotting possible problems
- Different people need different things
- Postural care in the real world with real people
