An emergency care plan makes it easy for someone to take over from you in a hurry. It has all the information about the person you care for in one place, so you can get it quickly and easily.
The emergency care plan has:
- emergency contacts
- the care needs of the person you care for
- medical information and contacts
- a medicine list
- carer emergency cards
You can use as many of these sections as you need – it’s up to you.
