If you’re aged 18 or over and live in the county of Leicestershire, you can request a care and support assessment to find out if you have eligible care and support needs. Carers can also request a carer’s assessment of their own support needs.
Eligibility for care
We use national eligibility criteria from the Care Act 2014 to identify whether you have eligible care and support needs when we have completed your care and support assessment.
You may be eligible for care and support from us if:
You have needs arising from a physical or mental impairment or illness.
You’re unable to carry out two or more of the activities listed below:
managing and maintaining nutrition
maintaining personal hygiene
managing toilet needs
being appropriately clothed
being able to make use of all of your home safely
maintaining a habitable home environment
developing and maintaining family or other personal relationships
accessing and engaging in work, training education or volunteering
making use of necessary facilities or services in the local community including public transport, recreational facilities or services
carrying out any caring responsibilities you have for a child
As a result of not being able to carry out these tasks there is a significant impact on your wellbeing.
