“Needs Assessment”

This will help assess the practical and emotional needs of the person with dementia

“Financial Assessment”

This will help assess the financial situation of the person with dementia to determine if the local authority will pay for, or contribute towards costs of care, at home, in respite or nursing care

All carers are legally entitled to a carer’s assessment from their local council which could lead to them, or the person they are caring for, getting social care support to help with caring. The assessment is a conversation that will look at how caring impacts the carer’s ability to cope, including their physical, mental and emotional needs, and whether they are able or willing to carry on caring

Social services support for dementia

 

The adult social services department of your local council can help with your personal care and day-to-day activities. 

For example, social services may offer to provide:

  • carers to help you with washing and dressing

  • laundry services 

  • meals on wheels

  • aids and adaptations

  • access to day centres

 

Social services can also give you information about local services and support, much of which is provided by charities, such as the Alzheimer's Society and Age UK. Also local support groups who operate on a voluntary basis.
