Do you look after somebody who couldn’t manage without you? What would happen in an emergency if you couldn’t do your caring role?
Making a plan is an opportunity to have vital conversations with family, friends and neighbours about the role they could play in an emergency.
It can give you and the person you care for peace of mind, knowing they will be looked after as you and they would wish, until you are able to resume your role.
Completing a Carers Emergency Plan may stop an emergency becoming a crisis. It helps you to identify emergency contacts who you can trust to provide support at short notice and who can step into your caring role until alternate support can be arranged.
