What to do in an Emergency

If you are at all concerned about what to do if you as a Carer are not going
to be able to care for the person you look after, please call us on
0800 31 68 600.
You could attach this sheet to GP notes for the carer and cared for,
position it on or near the fridge for others, such as friends, family,
microproviders or paramedics. If you have one, attach to your medical
care plan.
If you know that there is a time period that you won’t be able to continue
in your caring role, such as for a planned medical procedure, and have no one who can support you, phone 0300 123 2224 to reach the duty team at
Somerset Direct and ask for temporary emergency respite.
