Abstract

This study explores the understanding of care assessments by care staff, which, the author contends, can become simply a task and another workforce issue, rather than actively supporting older people. The policy background to care assessments is explored and qualitative research is described. Key themes emerged from interviews conducted with care staff working in various settings, among themcommunication, documentation and a needs-led approach. These are explored and recommendations for improved practice are made.
