Safe Transfers Tip Sheet & Video Series

The term 'transfer' denotes the action of moving an individual from one location to another. Body mechanics refers to the manner in which we move in our daily activities. Safety is critical for caregivers who assist Veterans with body mechanics and transfers. This resource is designed to equip caregivers with practical insights and best practices, fostering the safety and well-being of both the Veteran and you, the caregiver, as you assist with body mechanics and transfers.
