Client Transfers

Many of our clients require some level of assistance when they move, but not everyone’s the same. Here are a couple of different techniques depending on what situation you are in.

The first video is about DEPENDENT transfers. A dependent transfer means that the client “depends” on you for assistance with the transfer. We will show some of the tips you can use with someone who doesn’t have a lot of strength. We will look at moving from a wheelchair to a chair and from a wheelchair into a shower.

The second video is about INDEPENDENT transfers. An independent transfer means that the client is a little more “independent” as does not require as much help as a dependent client.

The third video will teach you some tips on how to transfer a client from a toilet to a walker. This one can be challenging because many bathrooms don’t provide a lot of room to maneuver.

The fourth video focuses on transferring a client from a wheelchair to a vehicle. We have gotten a lot of questions about this transfer and Susi and Danisha will answer some of those questions.
