Care & Independence Training Event South will take place on Tuesday 5th July 2022, at the Doubletree by Hilton at Dartford Bridge, Kent, between 9.30am -1pm.

Steve Watson, National Sales Assessment Manager with over 25 years real-world experience within the industry of solving complex problems, and an enviable knowledge of sling equipment, will deliver the event joined by regular circuit presenter and Moving & Handling Specialist Melanie Furness.

Steve commented: “This is a great opportunity to get hands-on practical training alongside theory for any OT or professional responsible for a disabled, elderly or infirm person requiring sling-based care assistance.

A practical session with course handouts will be provided to all delegates.

Places are limited so those interested are encouraged to not delay with booking. Booking can be made by emailing marketing@careandindependence.com or calling 033 012 80808.

Oxfordshire-headquartered Care & Independence manufactures slings, shower chairs and cradles and stretchers, alongside selling a varied range of mobility aids and products to hospitals, nursing and residential homes and private customers.

The company launched its Glove Diamond Deluxe and Glove Diamond Deluxe Plus slings last year – an update of its much imitated Glove sling, which launched over 15 years ago.
