Coventry Carers' bulletin - January 2018

Carers' online self-assessments

ASC Banner

If you look after someone, and are aged 18 and over, the carers' on-line self-assessment is your chance to tell us about your caring role, your needs as a carer and the things you think will help.

The carers' online self-assessment is now live. Carers can now log in through the website and complete their assessment online, you can save it as you go along and go back to it when you have the time.   

When the assessment is complete an advisor will contact you from the Carers Trust Heart of England, they will talk through your assessment, give advice and information.  

The online self-assessment is just another way in which you can have your needs assessed as a carer.  If you feel you would benefit from talking through the assessment with someone please contact Adult Social Care Direct on 024 7683 3003.  


Dementia 2020 challenge

Dementia Challenge 2020

If you know someone who has been recently diagnosed with dementia or you are a carer for someone with dementia, the Department of Health want to know about your experience of the support you have received by completing an online survey.  

This questionnaire focuses on two key areas – the diagnosis process itself and the support you received after the diagnosis.  The survey should take around 15 minutes to complete.  

The aim of the survey is to get a better idea of how services can be improved moving forwards.  

If this is an area you are passionate about and have more to say there will also be the opportunity for you to join the Dementia 2020 Citizens' Panel for England.
