Care Act assessment

What is a Care Act assessment

A Care Act assessment looks (with you) at your care and support needs. From this, we can see what help you might need.

We might offer you a Care Act assessment if you contact us for help and we think you'd benefit from having one.

We can do the assessment over the phone or in person. It depends on your needs and what is better for you.

What the Care Act assessment looks at

The Care Act assessment looks at:

  • What you need help with - like things you can and cannot do for yourself
  • What's good in your life at the moment and who you have around you - like friends and family who support you
  • Your wellbeing - are you affected by not being able to do certain things
  • What's important to you right now - for example, how your want to live your life and what you'd like to achieve
