What if? service
What if something happens to you, which means you are unable to look after your loved one?
The 'What If?' service operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year. It can provide emergency support to the person you care for, in the event of you being unable to care because of a sudden illness, accident or other unplanned event. This is done by getting in touch with your nominated contacts for you, with back-up support available, if essential.
If the person you look after lives in Cambridgeshire you can register a 'What If? Plan' with Carers Trust Cambridgeshire and apply for an Emergency Card. This is a free service funded by the Council to look after adults with care needs during an emergency involving their family carer.
