Carers Emergency and Future Planning

Emergency and Future Planning offers carers peace of mind by ensuring the person they look after will receive help in an emergency and in the future.

What is an Emergency Care Plan?

  • The Emergency Care Plan will detail the immediate care needs of the cared for person.
  • Carers will be issued with a Carers Emergency Card, should an emergency occur, the Emergency Card will alert services that a plan is in place.

What is Future Planning?

  • Future planning is supporting carers to make a plan for the future care arrangements of the person they care for.
  • This will allow carers to be more prepared and in control having made considered choices should the carer no longer be able to fulfil their caring role.

If you would like further information on the service, please contact one of our Adult Support Workers.
