Carer's Support and Assessment Needs

Carers who provide substantial support on a regular basis to a family member, friend or neighbour who has any illness, disability or is frail due to being older are eligible to have an assessment of their support needs as a carer.

The carer assessment gives you an opportunity to talk about the support and care you provide; how this affects your physical and emotional health and family life; any concerns, worries or difficulties you have; and the supports you need to continue caring.

For more detailed information see the Trust Carer Information Booklet. You can ring the appropriate team as listed in the booklet or you can complete theĀ Trust Carer Assessment Referral form to request an assessment.
