Emergency planning for carers
Who will pick up the pieces when you can't be there?
Are you a carer? Does someone rely on you? What would happen if you couldn’t be there?
We all think we will always be there but what if you were ill, had to go to your doctor or hospital,
had a family crisis to deal with, or you were just running late? What would you do?
That’s where an emergency plan could help.
Planning for the unexpected can help you figure out who will pick up the pieces when you can’t. Having a plan in place can stop an emergency becoming a crisis and can give you and the person you care for peace of mind.
So what do you need to consider?
1. The who, what and why of emergency planning.
2. Your emergency planning toolkit.
3. Writing your emergency plan.
