Planning for an emergency
You may be worried about what will happen to the person you care for if you are involved in an accident or crisis that prevents you from continuing in your caring role.
The Central Bedfordshire Carers Emergency Card enables you to record what you would like to happen in case of an emergency.
You can easily store the small card in your purse / wallet, bag and in your fridge. When people find the card they will know who to contact.
You may also want to put the Carers Helpline number, 0300 300 8036, in your mobile phone under ICE (In Case of Emergency) as the emergency services will look for this when attending incidents.
