Fluctuating needs in assessment and eligibility for the Care Act 2014

Part of Care Act 2014

This guide provides an overview of key elements to consider in order to ensure any form of care assessment undertaken - for the adult requiring care and support or their carer with support needs - takes full account of the extent of fluctuating needs. These are needs which may not be apparent at the time of the assessment but have been an issue in the past and are likely to arise again in the future. The guide provides information and practical example on what practitioners need to do to established an accurate picture of fluctuating needs and includes a checklist of core duties for local authorities.

Fluctuating needs: the Care Act 2014

Part of Care Act 2014

Under the Care Act 2014, assessments should reflect more accurately a comprehensive picture of people's needs - including how they change over time. In this film two people, one with mental health needs, the other with a physical disability, talk about their conditions, assessment, how their needs can fluctuate and the impact this has on the level of care and support they need. The film illustrates how the new requirement aims to recognise people as individuals by endorsing a much-needed degree of flexibility and responsive care, as well as offering valuable support for people with mental health and physical health conditions which may vary over time.
