What is Double Handed Care?

Double handed care is a care terminology for a person needing the assistance of two carers. Before going in and providing the manual handling support, Care & Carers will write up all the relevant risk assessments and ensure the care plan is fully up to date. All our care team undertaking these tasks have been adequately trained and vetted to ensure safe practices. Some of these tasks are;

  • Repositioning with the use of slide sheets
  • Full personal care in bed, including hair washing
  • Hoisting
  • Using a range of equipment, including commodes and hospital beds etc
  • Support with all types of transfers

Double handed care can be highly complex, but we do not let this deter us from supporting you in your needs. We will always ensure we are utilising best practices and keeping you safe while enabling you to live as normal.
