What is an assessment?

  • An assessment is a tool that you can use to help you to stay in control of your life.
  • It is a document that will reflect fully your needs and wishes, anticipating and recording possible changes in the future.
  • It will allow for all options available to you to be clearly defined with you and your current carers and support network. It will explore what changes you may need to make in the future.

When will an assessment be of benefit to me?

  • You may have some care needs that are getting more difficult for you to manage. You may have had an illness or procedure that means for a while you may need some help.
  • The assessment will clearly identify what your support needs are and outline the options available to meet these needs.
  • When an assessment identifies that an individual has care and support needs which meets National Eligibility Criteria, we will signpost  to your Local Authority if you feel this is appropriate for you.

Who will do the assessment?

  • Assessors will be appropriately qualified Nurses, Social Workers and Occupational Therapists.
  • Rosekel will contract with appropriately identified assessors to carry out specific assessments, we will draw on their areas of expertise to ensure they are fully able to assess peoples strengths.
  • We will ensure they remain updated and have the necessary skills to carry out assessments.
  • We will supply the appropriate tools to ensure they are able to support people to fully summarise their needs and requirements.
