It’s been suggested that I have a carer’s assessment (I’ve been ‘caring’ for >20 years in some shape/form and much more so in last 10 years) and I was wondering if anyone has gone though this and it has made a positive difference to your circumstances?
I’m a bit concerned that it is a paper exercise, esp. when seeing questions like the one below:
What parts of the caring role do you enjoy and what brings you most satisfaction/pride from this role?
I can’t say that I ‘enjoy’ or get ‘pride’ from my caring role…things need to be done, I want to do them well for my wife’s benefit and yes its good if it helps her/makes her more comfortable etc, but is that pride or enjoyment?
Not even sure what value that question adds to the assessment - does it make a difference if I felt those things? Am I being too cynical? - Please be honest
Anyone had a good experience with these assessments? Are they worth completing?
Thanks, in advance.
