Carers Health & Wellbeing Check
A Carer’s Assessment, known as a Health & Wellbeing Check, is a conversation about your caring situation and how it effects you. The assessment looks at all aspects of caring including your practical and emotional needs which might include having a short break, leisure activities, arranging sitting services or attending a support group. If needed, a further assessment can be arranged for your cared for.
Health & Wellbeing Checks (Carer’s Assessment) are explained in more detail in the leaflet here.
If you would like to download a Health & Wellbeing booklet and self-assessment form, please click here.
Once you have completed the Health & Wellbeing Check booklet, please return it either to Michele at Chatto Road Surgery, or to Carers Aid Torbay.
