We might arrange for you to have a care needs assessment. This is when a social worker or occupational therapist from the Chelmsford City social care team will visit you to discuss your care and support needs and advise you on the next steps.
If you’re assessed as needing social care and support, we will agree a care and support plan with you. The plan includes:
- how your support will be provided
- how much it costs
- who will be paying for it
