Emergency Care Planning

Carers often worry about what would happen to the person(s) they support if an emergency or similar comes up. Having an emergency plan is an important step.

Carers NZ has created a suite of Emergency Planning Tools:

  • Emergency Care Plan
  • Important Papers Checklist
  • Medications Care Plan
  • Emergency Carer ID Card

Keep in an easily located place, and update it regularly. Talk about the plan with the person(s) you care for, if possible, and with family / friends who are your emergency contacts. These tools are also applicable for anyone self-managing health or disability needs.
