Prior to the assessment try to think about all the things that you have to do as a carer and any difficulties you have because of your caring role.  Are you sleeping and do you get enough exercise? Do you have time to yourself? Are your relationships affected? Are you worried about having to give up work or education? Are you isolated?  Is the person you care for getting enough help?  Do you struggle with the level of care you are providing and what is the impact on your physical and mental health and wellbeing.  You can also ask about respite or having a break from caring as it may benefit your wellbeing.
