Carers Assessments
* It must be person-centred.
* To understand if there is need for support requires evidence gathered during a semi-structured conversation.
* The assessment should be led by the carer and facilitated by the assessor using strengths-based open-ended questions.
* Identifying assessed needs is in relation to the nine areas of wellbeing.
* The assessment considers the viewpoint of all those involved in the process (i.e. assessor, individual, professionals, carer, etc.).
* An assessment should be a proportionate response to the presenting needs and be flexible and adaptable to the assessed needs and the individual circumstances.
* An assessment can be undertaken using different means/methods, e.g. telephone.
