Through home visits from a social worker, the Carer’s Assessment establishes the impact that caring for a person with dementia is having on a carer’s life. It then identifies the relevant support to allow the carer to continue caring for a person with dementia for as long as they want to and are able to.

This support can include things like respite care to allow a carer to make time for themselves or even training to allow them to care for the person with dementia in the safest and most appropriate way.
