Social care needs assessment

If you have a physical or mental impairment that affects your ability to live independently, you may be eligible for social care support. An assessment will be carried out to determine your needs and eligibility. Find out more here.

What your day looks like 

We will ask about your daily routine and how you manage things like washing, dressing and making meals. 

Your health

We will ask about your health, any health conditions you may have, any medication you take and any health services that support you.

Your home

We will ask about your home, what works for you and if there is anything you need help with.
