Why should I have an emergency plan?

If you make these provisions now, it lets your wishes and preferences and those of the person you care for be recorded and planned for.

Emergency and future planning can:

  • ensure that the relevant people have all the necessary information to step into your caring role temporarily
  • identify resources for an emergency when informal networks can't be relied on
