Emergency and future planning

Emergency and future planning


Emergency and future planning helps you plan for the care of an adult in case of emergencies or if you're no longer able to care for them.

It makes provisions for occasions or circumstances when you can't fulfil your caring role, and it sets out the practical arrangements for short-term, unplanned periods.
