Carers have a lot to cope with and sometimes an emergency contingency plan gets forgotten. Quite often the extended family of the cared for person are not registered at docter’s surgeries as carers.
The Emergency Planning Service is for carers living in the Bradford District. It runs in conjunction with the Safe and Sound pendant. Carers need to register with information about themselves and the person looked after, and details of the chosen “responders” to be contacted in an emergency. The aim being to give the carer and the cared for person the peace of mind to know that their loved one is taken care of . For further details contact the www.carersresource.org
