Moving & Handling Assessments

MOVING & HANDLING ASSESSMENTS IN YOUR OWN HOME IF SOMEONE HAS LIMITED MOBILTY & REQUIRES A LOT OF ASSISTANCE, A MOVING & HANDLING ASSESSMENT WILL HELP DETERMINE THE SAFEST METHODS.

When an individual has very limited mobility and requires a lot of assistance, it is really important to ensure that they are being moved and handled in a way that is safe for both them and the person(s) caring for them.

A moving & handling assessment is carried out by a trained occupational therapist the client’s own home, or wherever they are being cared for. During the assessment the occupational therapist will look at the individual being cared for and their level of mobility and needs, the environment, their carers and the methods and equipment currently being used to move and assist them.

The aim of the assessment is to provide guidance on best practice and techniques, to ensure that all parties remain safe and aren’t subjected to any unnecessary risks.

Once the OT has finished the assessment and has a clear picture of any moving & handling needs, they will document them in a report along with a risk assessment, recommendations for any equipment or training that may be required and a moving & handling plan.
