Carers who would like an assessment can now complete a self-assessment as an alternative to requesting an assessment from an Adult Social Care practitioner. The self-assessment form and guidance notes are available from Social Care Direct or Care for the Carers, or carers can print the documents from the ESCC website to fill in and return via post.
Carers who would like support to complete a self-assessment should contact Care for the Carers, where they will also be offered assistance with completing their CRESS plan.
Reviews are not currently available as a self-assessment.
For more information, contact Social Care Direct on 0345 60 80 191, Care for the Carers on 01323 738390, or visit https://new.eastsussex.gov.uk/socialcare/carers/assessment/ where you can also download the forms.
