They’re efficient, thorough and focused on finding the best solutions for you to build your strengths and stay independent at home.
Before we visit, you will receive a call from APM to confirm the best time for us to come to your home.
You will also be asked to confirm your identity when they arrive at your home, so it's important to have your ID, such as your driver's licence or passport, ready for your assessment.
We will then spend time getting to know you and how you go about your daily life. We want to know about the things you're good at and the areas of day-to-day you need help with.
We will discuss how you go about your daily life and what sort of regular activities you do. These can be anything from household chores, cooking and cleaning, and personal care, to transport, shopping or socialising.
Your assessor will be asking plenty of questions, so it's important you're open with us.
If you have a family member or support person you rely on, they can also be present for the assessment.
