If you care for an older person or an adult who is disabled or ill, you are entitled to a carers assessment. This is a discussion about the impact caring has on your life, so that we can offer advice and support. Assessments can be carried out by our social care team at the same time as an assessment of the person you care for, or you can choose to have them separately.
During the assessment, you will be asked about the help and support you provide, what you are prepared to continue doing, and what would make managing easier. You will also have the opportunity to talk about your concerns for the future.
Following the assessment, we will discuss how to help. This may be through specific services or other means of support, such as the voluntary sector. We will also find out if you’re eligible for a carers direct payment.
