Prevention service description

A support worker would help the carer to work through their options, signposting support including the Carers Emergency Response Scheme (CERS), assisting them in completing a carer’s assessment and Carers Emergency Card, and looking at housing and support options, wills, trusts and power of attorney. The main focus of the support was to put a future care plan and a contingency plan in place. The project also took an holistic approach examining the whole family and wider support network.

Phase 1 of the project aimed to understand the needs of older carers and identify the resources and support available for them. As a result of this work LCYCP developed a Carers Community Support Directory along with a Planning for the Future Toolkit. Both of these were used by project support workers during Phase 2 (delivery) to enable them to help carers develop a contingency plan for short term care and a future care plan for when the carer decides they can no longer care.
