Carer’s assessment

If you look after someone who couldn’t manage without your help, you have a right to have your own needs assessed.

A carer’s assessment looks at:

  • the care you provide and how this affects your life
  • ways you can access support and what you would like to achieve
  • your strengths and capabilities
  • types of support available to you in the community

You can assess yourself online here:
