It is important to plan ahead. Planning for future emergencies can bring a family peace of mind.
Planning ahead ensures you can let other people know what is required for effective care should you suddenly be unavailable as a carer. It can also ensure that you will have appropriate steps in place if you need to suddenly take over health, lifestyle or financial decisions for the person you support.
Most importantly planning for future emergencies ensures the person you support receives the support they need and desire when they are capable of making decisions and being involved in the planning.
