If you look after someone who needs care, help or support because they have an illness, disability or are elderly and frail, then a carer's emergency card will help to give you peace of mind. The carer's emergency card will enable people to quickly identify you as a carer in an emergency.
You should carry the card with you at all times. If you have an accident or emergency, then the card will alert the emergency services that there is someone at home who can't manage without help or assistance. They will then contact the number of the back of the card so that someone can help the person you care for.
If you would like to receive a Carers Emergency Card please contact Hayley Smith on 01443 864604.
