This card is carried by the Carer at all times, so that in the event the Carer is suddenly taken ill, or involved in an accident, it can be used to identify that they care for someone. The card does not contain any personal details. In an emergency situation, a person telephones the number on the card and quotes the registration number. the call is received by Kent County Council’s 24hour Contact Centre. Stay can immediately access the carer’s pre-arranged emergency plan and put it into action. The service is free and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
