What is a carer’s assessment?
A carer’s assessment is your opportunity to discuss how being a carer affects your life. You can discuss any changes you might like to make and how you can be supported to achieve these.
A carer’s assessment is not an assessment of your capabilities as a carer, though importantly you will be asked if you are willing and able to continue to provide care.
The assessment could be face to face, between you and an assessor, a supported self-assessment online or a phone assessment. We have attached a copy of the assessment form to this page, so that you can see what questions you will be asked. If you would prefer, you can also complete the form yourself and send it back to us.
