What is a needs assessment?

Any assessment should be therapeutic in nature; this means you should gain some insight not only into your current care needs but also your abilities. A holistic assessment should  take into account:

  • The emotional and social side of your life.

  • Your skills and abilities.

  • Your views, religious and cultural background and support network.

  • Any physical difficulties you may experience or any risks.

  • Any health or housing requirements.

  • Your needs and wishes.

  • What you would like to happen.

  • Needs you have connected with any kind of disability or illness.

Generally, assessments take place in your own home; our experienced Social Workers aim to ensure the process is comfortable and relaxed. 


Our assessments are based  upon the same legislation and eligibility criteria used by the NHS and Local Authorities outlined in the Care Act (2014).
