Care assessments

What is a care assessment for older people?

A care assessment is the process of discussing with you, your carer and family exactly what your needs are. With your consent, information may also be gathered from your GP, district nurse or other professionals involved with your care.

If your assessment shows that you will need help from another department, such as housing or chiropody, we will either make a request on your behalf or give you the relevant information to make your own request.
