Establish with the individual a partnership approach to the assessment process

If I were to be working with an elderly gentleman who is frail, has mental issues and has been referred to our service, I would reassure him that this assessment is as much about him and his needs. The reassurance that everything that he states I would be in a position to offer support into expressing their needs. Again I would tell them that our service is here to support them right from the beginning

 

 Establish with the individual how the process should be carried out and who else should be involved in the process.

Arranging a suitable time for them, length of time they would be willing to have and any reasonable adjustments they may need beforehand.I would enquire from the individual if they have anyone who might be a stakeholder in their care, including friends, family and advocates. It would be up to them to pick someone whom they trust and know has their best interests at heart.
