Having a Care Assessment


Personal care covers any care to do with looking after yourself – getting dressed, washing yourself, eating and drinking, getting around or needing someone to watch over you to keep you safe, for example if you’re unsteady on your feet or can’t see or hear very well.

If you think you may be entitled to funding for care services at home, please contact us and we will support you to contact your local authority for an assessment of your care needs.

The assessment will look at your eligibility for social care support and how much financial help you are entitled to.

If the council pay for all or some of your care costs, you have two options:

1. The council can arrange care services for you.

2. The council can give you a direct payment, which is a cash payment you can use to pay for a carer or any other services that help you meet your needs.
