Your care and support plan

Your care and support plan

After your eligible care and support needs have been assessed and discussed, a care and support plan will be drawn up. For eligible carers, a carer’s support plan will be drawn up.

Your plan will show what:

  • is important to you
  • things you can do to live well and stay well
  • care and support you might need from others
  • support you need to care for someone if you are a carer

Your local Community Advice Hub can explain assessments and planning to you in person. The hubs are managed by Age UK Solihull and supported by other organisations including DIAL. Carers Trust Solihull also provide help to carers.

Care and support planning

To ensure that good care and support planning helps you, it is important that you are involved at every stage of the process if you are able to.

This is known as person-centred care and support or personalisation.

Personalisation should allow you to have the choice and control over:

  • how to meet your needs
  • when you meet your needs
  • who provides your care and support

To ensure your care and support plan continues to work for you in the best way, Solihull Adult Care and Support will work with you to review the plan regularly.

If you need help to plan your care and support, you can nominate anyone you wish to be involved the process.

You can ask friends and family members to help you. You can also seek help from:

Your plan will be reviewed regularly to ensure it is working in the best way for you and the person you care for.

If you would like help with your carer's support plan, you can ask someone you trust to be involved in the process. You could ask a friend or trusted family member, or can seek help from:
