Planning for possible difficulties or events can help avoid a crisis.

It can be very worrying for carers and families about what will happen if you become ill or go into hospital or how to get help if the needs of the person you care for change suddenly. We would encourage you to think about the types of issues or problems that might arise and create an emergency plan to help deal with these difficult times.

The following pages in this section will give you ideas about what to plan for and what services are out there that might be able to help.
