Help for the person you are caring for

Be involved in making decisions for the person you care for

You know the person you care for and their needs, so your involvement in decisions about their treatment and care is very important.

You will be involved in these decisions and be given the information you need, unless the person you care for disagrees.

Make sure people are aware of your opinions and wishes about your ability to provide care and support.

Don't be afraid to ask for detailed information and the person's condition and needs, including when they are discharged from hospital.
