Will I get care from the county council?

Question:
Will I get care from the county council?
Answer:

A social care practitioner or social care assessor will assess your needs and explore what your family, friends and local community can do to help you. 

They will assess your eligibility for care in line with the criteria set out in the Care Act 2014

If you are a carer for a friend or family member you can request an assessment too. You don’t need the permission of the person you care for to apply for an assessment. 

If you are eligible for care and support, a social care practitioner or social care assessor will also explore how your needs can best be met including how your own family and neighbours may be able to help you.
