Equipment Hire – Humber

Living aids are gadgets and specially designed equipment that can help you complete tasks more easily. Often they are things you can purchase yourself at little cost, but sometimes they are more specialised and need to be acquired from a specialist supplier.

Herbert Protocol

The Herbert Protocol is a national scheme which encourages Carers, families, friends or neighbours, to print out and fill in a form with as much detail as possible, then keep it somewhere safe – along with a recent photo. That way, if the worst does happen, you can give the police all the information they need to start the search straight away – and you don’t have to think about significant dates or places when you’re worried and upset.

Carers Emergency Planning – East Riding of Yorkshire

If you are aged 18 or over and are responsible for caring for someone who lives with you, it is important to consider what would happen if you are caught up in an emergency and unable to carry out your care duties. You can do this by creating an emergency cover plan so you know the person you care for would be kept safe if a situation occurs. You should also carry a carer’s emergency contact card.
