Contingency Planning

If you care for your loved one at home, try to put in place a contingency plan with friends, family or trusted neighbours, should you become unwell yourself.

In the contingency plan consider:

  • Details of names and addresses and any other contact details for the person you look after
  • Who you and the person you look after would like contacting in an emergency – this could
    be family, friends or professionals
  • Details of the medication that the person you look after is taking
  • Details of any ongoing treatment they need.
The Carers UK website has useful information on how to prepare a contingency plan and you can contact our Carers Support Line on 01933 677907 Monday - Friday 9am-5pm
