Being prepared can’t stop emergencies happening, but it can make difficult and worrying situations a bit more manageable.
And it’s times like these that being prepared matters most. A Carer’s Emergency Plan enables you to consider what would happen to the person you care for and how they would be supported should you be unable to care due to emergency or illness.
The Carer’s Emergency Plan is a safe way to hold essential information about the person you care for, such as what their care needs are and who needs to be informed if something goes wrong.
If you have the facility, it may be useful to copy your plan to a memory stick as it can be updated easily as any changes occur.
