A short carer assessment?
If you are managing quite well and just need a little help, we would recommend a short assessment, a conversation will help us decide together if we can help this way.
A short assessment and support plan would normally be completed at the same time as they can be completed fairly quickly.
A short assessment is for when a situation is making you feel a little less well or less able to cope, maybe something you need for your caring role is broken and making things difficult or you are feeling a little low, you are feeling tired and need a boost. There are many things that this assessment can cover, and you can have more than one of these assessments in a year, they are aimed at helping you stay well and able to care.
