Gloucestershire Carers Emergency Scheme
Do you care for someone? What would happen if you got caught in a emergency?
The Gloucestershire Carers Emergency Scheme (CES) can help. It will help to give you peace of mind that the person that you care for will receive support if an emergency arises which prevents you from caring for them.
Emergency situations for example could be :
- becoming ill or having an unplanned hospital admission
- other family emergencies
- being delayed due to unexpected travel issues
Crossroads Care offers support to those with care needs and their carers.
