Are there any other benefits to having an Alert Card?
The Alert Card is non-transferrable and must only be used by the carer named on the card.
We endeavour to ensure that all information regarding Alert Card benefits below is accurate. However, Devon Carers cannot be held responsible if any of these benefits are withdrawn by the organisations.
If in any doubt please do phone the venue you are visiting to double check their procedure.
