Changes to Financial Assessment Processes for Adult Care

20 Feb 2019 Mar 20

"Changes to Financial Assessment Processes for Adult Care Users ... which will result in changes to client contributions for non-residential adult social care and support packages ..."

 

North Somerset Council is proposing:

"Changes to Financial Assessment Processes for Adult Care Users of adult social care and support services undergo a financial assessment in order to determine how much, if any, they should contribute to the costs of their care. We are proposing some changes to a number of procedural arrangements for financial assessments, which will result in changes to client contributions for non-residential adult social care and support packages, including both managed services such as home care and non-managed services such as Direct Payments.

 

The two key proposals which we are keen to hear your views on are:

  • a change in how we treat the enhanced rate daily living element of the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) in assessments; and
  • a change in how we treat the Minimum Income Guarantee for adults who are part of a couple.

You can read more about these proposals and our work to understand any potential impacts in our Equality Impact Assessment. We have also provided an online questionnaire to collect your views of how these proposals may impact service users and their families."
