If you have just started to care for someone, we know you will have many things to do and think about.
Once you have some of the key supports in place, it’s a good idea to look around and see what else you can do or think about to make your life easier – both now and in the future.
You can do this. You don’t have to know everything all at once. You can get help.
There can be a lot to keep track of as a carer – from medicines to health care appointments, medical history, care needs, support services and emergency contacts.
You may not be able to prevent emergencies. Accidents, illness, life events and disasters can happen to anyone.
An emergency care plan has all the information about the person you care for in one place, so you can get it quickly and easily.
