How do I get a care assessment?

When you think you or someone you know requires social care, if it’s at home or in a care setting, the initial step is to get a care needs assessment.

How do I get an assessment of care needs?

Get in touch with the adult social services department of your local council and ask for a care assessment. Tell them that there might be a need for assistance with everyday activities such as mobility or accessing your community.

The assessment doesn’t cost anything, and everyone can have one, it doesn’t matter the income level or what type of care is deemed necessary as a result, such as live-in help or entry into a care home.

Can I organise one for a family member or friend?

Yes, but people have to agree to have one (unless they do not have the capacity or cannot communicate their own decisions).

What does the assessment involve?

A professional in social care will normally visit and find out how you cope with the tasks of your daily life. Social services might offer you an assessment on the phone or online. You don’t have to agree to this if you would rather be seen in person. The assessment will look at things like:

The emotional and social side of your life

your mobility

cultural and religious needs and network support

physical difficulties you might encounter or risk

health requirements or housing

what you want to happen
