Emotional and Practical Considerations for Succession Planning and the NDIS

Planning for a time when you are no longer able to be the primary carer for the person you care for, is likely to be an emotional and stressful experience for both you and the person you care for.

Carers Australia, in consultation with carers, has developed a fact sheet with important information and suggested pathways of support for carers and the person being cared for, to consider when creating a succession plan.
