Peace of Mind for Carers
Moray Carer Aware Card Launched
A NEW emergency contact card for Moray’s unpaid carers has been launched. It’s set to offer peace of mind in times of crisis.
Carers often worry about what would happen if they found themselves in an emergency situation, unable to alert anyone that they are a carer and that someone relies on them for support.
In response to this concern, Moray Carer Services has created a ‘Carer Aware’ card.
Carers will be urged to carry the free card with them at all times, and if they find themselves involved in an emergency, accident or are taken ill, the card will enable people to quickly identify them as a carer.
The information provided on the card will be used to alert the carer’s named contacts that the person who is cared for may need assistance.
Moray Carer Services members started issuing the Carer Aware card as part of their efforts to raise awareness and encourage unpaid carers to make the most of their local support.
Cards can be collected from any Carer Services member - Quarriers Carer Support Service (Moray), Alzheimer Scotland (Moray), Cornerstone, Cross Roads Scotland (Moray) and Enable Cuppa Club.
