How do I get an assessment?

How do I get an assessment?

There are a number of ways in which you can get a needs assessment including:

  • self-referral
  • a referral from a carer, friend or family member
  • a referral from a professional such as your GP, with your permission

Once we are aware that you may have needs, we have a duty to make sure that you have an assessment.

Requesting a needs assessment

You will need to contact Staffordshire Cares, where one of our advisors will ask you a few questions about your situation. This is so they can provide suitable information and advice and refer you to the right people to carry out your needs assessment.

What do I need to do?

Throughout the whole assessment we will involve you. We will make sure that the process is appropriate to you.

It is flexible and identifies what your strengths are and identifies the areas where you need support in order to achieve your goals.

Things you may want to think about in preparation

These could be about how you manage your day to day routines and activities such as:

  • washing
  • dressing
  • maintaining health and keeping active
  • accessing the local community
  • managing your home
