Parentmedic First Aid Classes For Parents
We recently attended a Parentmedic class and we got so much from it! The Parentmedic movement is all about teaching parents and carers practical first aid techniques to deal with common emergencies that happen in and around the home. We covered CPR and choking with a chance to practice on a doll, rashes and temperature management was discussed and we all tried out an epipen while hearing more about allergies. There were also lots of helpful tips for making the home safer and plenty of time to answer questions from the group.
The classes are held in the home and children are welcome to attend. In our case many of the children were old enough to not only attend but participate in the class and learn new skills themselves.
