Carer's Emergency Card - Wiltshire
The Carers Emergency Card is a scheme set up to give carers peace of mind by ensuring that the people they care for will continue to receive the care they need if the carer is unable to provide it due to an emergency. A card is issued to the carer with the contact number of a 24/7 call centre and a PIN number which is unique to that carer. Anyone can call that number and inform the emergency response team that alternative care is required for the cared for person. A Carers Emergency Card also gives the carer the opportunity to outline their preferences for alternative care for the person they care for. You can register for the card online, after registering for an account on ‘Your Care Your Support Wiltshire’ or by paper and pen.
