Baby care plan template

Emerging Minds, Australia

This care plan template is designed for parents to complete regarding the care of their infant when they are unwell or unavailable.

Many parents experiencing mental illness find there are periods where they’re well, and then some periods of ‘crisis’ when they may need extra support or emergency help. It may be decided that you need to get extra help in a hospital or a clinic.

It can help your child (and your entire family) to be prepared for these times by creating a family care plan. It’s a ‘just in case’ plan that lets everyone (including family members and health professionals) know what your family’s wishes are when things get tough, particularly for those who might not know you well.

A family plan is not a legally binding document, but is written to outline your family’s preferences and to maintain the familiarity of the everyday routine that your child needs to feel safe and secure during these times.
