Emergency planning for families during coronavirus

Emergency planning during the Coronavirus outbreak

Together Matters has written information to help family carers plan to get the support they need during the current crisis.
The guide has information and ideas for:

coping with staying at home
family carer/paid carer becoming ill
their relative becoming ill
their relative going to hospital

It’s designed for family carers to use with others, such as wider family, neighbours, friends, support organisations, carers’ centres or social workers who can give support with finding solutions and putting practical things in place. Lots of ideas from Learning Disability Nurses have helped to shape the sections on being ill and possible hospital admissions.

Please circulate the details as widely as you can within Community Learning Disability Teams, learning disability nursing, family support organisations and anywhere else you have links with. The aim of the guide is to reduce the risks that families currently face.
