Under the Care Act, since April 2015 everyone has a right to a free need’s assessment from care providers (with new eligibility criteria). We can help you deliver these assessments – as additional capacity to clear backlogs, or to cover peaks in demand, or as an ongoing provision. We have access to a vast number of social workers and occupational therapists across the County who are qualified to carry out new assessments and also reviews of those who already receiving care services.
Our triage and initial assessment service provide an integrated, single point of access for referrals from community health, social and health care professionals, and people in need of care or their families and carers. Our trained specialists handle first line contacts relating to social care and carefully determine the most effective follow-on course of action. An initial assessment is completed either before we start a private case or within 72 hours of commencing care for a local authority client or 96 hours for a private client. The initial assessment includes a chat with the client and anyone present and the assessor will run down the services that we offer and what services the client would be interested in. At this stage the assessor will gather the client’s general details such as name/ address/ D.O.B/ next of kin/ doctor’s details and if the client has any allergies, disabilities, care needs, fears or concerns, apprehensions etc.
