Carers emergency alert scheme
We offer this free, local service for all island carers. Carers can register with us and provide information about the person they care for, including emergency contact details for people who have keys to their home. Carers are issued with a wrist band or ID card which has a contact phone number for emergencies and a code to identify the wearer.
Our service is available 24 hours per day. In an emergency, our Wightcare response team will help by:
- contacting family or friends to inform them
- contacting the person you care for to inform them
- checking that the person’s support needs are continued to be met
- arrange emergency help if required.
