A Carer’s Assessment is a statutory right (under the Care Act 2014) for adults who look after another adult who need help to enable them to continue to care.
Its purpose is to assess the impact that the care and support you provide is having on your own wellbeing, as well as important aspects of the rest of your life, including the things you want to achieve day-to-day. Other important issues are also considered, such as whether you are able or willing to carry on caring, whether you work or want to work, and whether you want to study or do more socially. The assessment is used to identify your support needs, and to plan how these can be met.
Coventry City Council has commissioned us to undertake Carers’ Assessments for those carers who are not already in touch with Social Care Services or are looking after someone who has not been in touch with these services.
