Plan for the unexpected
Have you thought about what would happen to the person you care for if you had a crisis to deal with? What if you became ill, broke your leg, suffered bereavement or even had an emergency appointment to go to?
When emergencies happen, our lives are often put on hold while we recover or get things sorted out. But if you’re a carer the person you look after will still need care and support even if you aren’t personally in a position to provide it.
Take time to make a good carer emergency plan, it’s time worth spending, as you and the person you look after will have peace of mind if something happens and you aren’t able to provide care. You can use our template and guide to help your planning, helping to ensure it meets the needs of you and your family.
