A Carers Assessment

A Carer’s Assessment is the opportunity for you to talk to someone about the impact that caring has on your life. This can take place over the telephone, in a community venue or in your home. The assessment looks at how caring affects your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing and whether you are able and willing to carry on caring. It’s a chance to focus on you, your strength, and your needs. 

The benefit of having an assessment is that it will identify care and support needs and provide information and advice about services aimed at meeting those needs. Click on the area that the person you care for lives in to find out more about how to have a carers assessment:
