A Discussion on Place: Using and Removing Slings

Can I leave a sling in place? That’s a great question! The decision to leave or not to leave a sling in place is unique to each person and oftentimes requires an interdisciplinary approach leveraging integrative thinking. Join us for this session as we explore the factors that may need to be considered when deciding if or when it may be appropriate to leave a sling in place.

Hygiene: Addressing the Challenges of Toileting in Daily Care

Building on last month's sit-to-stand webinar, as an individual’s ability to mobilize decreases and the need for assistance increases, toileting may become more challenging, and one might be left wondering what are the options? For individuals who require greater than the minimum to moderate assistance, a passive lift and sling might be an effective solution for the promotion of toileting. This webinar will focus on factors to consider when toileting with various slings and provide some guidelines to help set staff and end-users up for success.

Ready, Steady, Stand!

Let’s take a moment to think about how we move from sitting to standing up. What may seem like a simple task; getting out of bed in the morning, off the toilet or out of a vehicle, is in fact a complex skill. The ability to move independently from sit to stand allows us to connect easily with our surroundings and the people in our lives. As an individual’s ability to stand up decreases the need for caregiver assistance may increase. Some individuals may require supervision with moving from sit to stand, while others may require greater assistance which leads us to this session. The aim for this webinar is to explore sit to stand solutions for individuals with varying needs to be able to move safely and to optimize their abilities as we strive to make everyday life easier.
