Carers assessments

A carers assessment will help identify the impact of your caring role and what support you may need.

 A carers assessment is:

  • A conversation focussed on you the carer, your caring situation and your needs
  • A process which enables you to be formally recognised and supported in your role as carer
  • A time for you to express your needs and concerns regarding your caring role
  • An opportunity to consider what support might be available within your local community
  • A chance to get information and advice to assist you in your caring role and help sustain your health and wellbeing

A carers assessment is not an assessment of how good a carer you are, nor is it means tested.
