Assessments & Reviews

We can help

Let us hold your hand

One of our team of highly experienced and empathetic assessors will come to the home of the client and carry out a fully independent assessment or review of the clients care and support needs. We will then generate a full report of those needs and work with the client to create an appropriate care plan to meet those needs. We will then propose an agreed care package.

We will then offer impartial advice to help you meet those needs independently.

This may include referring the client to local support groups or charities which offer assistance.

We will then, if necessary, present the care plan and proposed care package to your local authority Older Persons Services Department for the purpose of a revision of your existing care package.

In the unlikely event that your local OPS do not totally agree with our findings we will work with them and you to come to a mutually satisfying resolution to the outstanding issues.

In 90% of cases, SCS recommendations are accepted on presentation and additional services are implemented within 5 working days of approval from the local authority Older People Services Panel decision.
