Emergency card schemes
In some areas there are emergency card schemes set up for carers. They are meant to help the person you support if something happens to you. Some schemes just notify named contacts. Others may offer personal care for the person you support.
You can usually find these in the social care section of your local authority’s websites.
It might be called:
carer card scheme
carers emergency card
emergency care scheme
Carers are usually asked to register.
A plan should have things in it like:
the name, address and any other contact details of the person you look after
who you and the person you look after would like to be contacted in an emergency, this might include friends, family or professionals
