Carers Assessment

The Carer Assessment will provide you with information on your entitlements as a carer. It will also identify community services available to you and the person/s you care for.

CISS can assess your needs, if you provide regular and substantial care and you don’t get paid for it.

CISS staff can tell you about services that are available to help you, according to your assessment. They will give you an individual support plan to help you balance your commitments.

We can arrange to see you in your community.
