Emergency Care Plans
It is important to have a current record of essential personal information and key contact numbers handy in case you are ever involved in an emergency and other people (such as Ambulance Officers or hospital staff) need to know key information about you.
Carers NSW has Carer Support Kits that include an Emergency Support Kit, an Emergency Care Plan and an Emergency Care Card. You can record key information in these and keep them readily available in case you need to go to hospital suddenly or are involved in a similar situation.
To order a copy of the Carer Support Kit, contact Carers NSW on 1800 242 636. The kit is available in English and various community languages.
