In keeping with our QMCC goals and continued staff improvement, ADS staff participated in a focused training with Lindsay Vondrachek, a registered Physical Therapist with Consonus Healthcare. She addressed the techniques of transferring, lifting and assisting our ADS participants with the smallest risk of injury to ourselves and others. Almost every possible scenario was reviewed…including assists from a couch, assists with a walker, transfers to a wheelchair, assists in the restroom among many others. Since each participant has individual needs (that change from day to day) this was a chance for us to pick Lindsey’s brain as to how we might adapt to each specific situation. We value training and preparedness to best care for our clients, and we meet monthly to learn new techniques, deepen our care philosophy, and improve our day to day practice.
