Emergency Planning – Are You Prepared?
An effective emergency plan gives carers the opportunity to document concise, relevant information on the person they care for. This information could prove invaluable if the carer cannot care, in the short term, due to an unplanned event. It means that at times of crisis their views and knowledge of the person they care for can be shared with others.
A further benefit of an emergency plan is that the carer’s levels of doubt, worry and stress may be reduced through the actual process and completion of their plan. Identifying emergency contacts who could help in the event of an emergency, also bring re-assurance and peace of mind.
Carers can complete their emergency plan at a convenient location with the help of a volunteer or staff member.
