Adult Social Care Services of Brighton and Hove City Council provide relevant services to people in the City in need of care and support. Care and support can be provided to people with certain physical or mental impairment or illness. Help can also be provided to carers who are looking after these people in their homes.
Adult Social Care Services (ASCS) will carry out a needs assessment for people who appear to be in need of care and support regardless of their financial status or whether ASCS think their needs will be eligible.
A carer providing unpaid support to someone who could not manage without their help has the right to a carer’s assessment. A carer’s assessment will look at the care and support provided and identify any further support needed. There are a number of ways to have an assessment. The type of assessment will depend on your situation or preference. An assessment can be done over the telephone or someone from ASCS can visit you.
