Some people recently have been asking me if i want a carer's assessment, and i have tried to find information on what it is, and whats involved, anyone got any idea?
thankyou very much for the information.If you are a carer of someon with a severe and enduring mental illness - or physical illness - you are entitled toa carer's assessment of need. The carer sometime finds this difficult, but it may be for something like a weekly break from caring, or if your are unable to get sleep because of caring foro your patient, someone to sit in for you. I think the best thing to do is to write down what would make your caring job easier before the assessment. But do take advantage of it, as it helps you keep well youself.
