Video Tips: Using Hand-Under-Hand to Support Someone to Stand

The best way to support someone in standing up is to put your hand under his or her hand and guide him or her in doing the usual steps. This is much easier on your body than trying to pull the person up from the front.

Here are the steps to follow:

Step 1: Feet out and flat.

Step 2: Arms on something to push up.

Step 3: Lean forward.

Step 4: Push up with legs.
