Just Checking irrelevant to assessment for a person with 24hr care needs

A woman has 24hr care in her home as a tenant, in a care package not reviewed for YEARS. The council had agreed ages ago in writing not to change her package without her consent, but wanted to re-assess now and use ‘Just Checking’ to record movement at home. CASCAIDr’s advice has secured acknowledgement of the written agreement, flagged up that the parents hold welfare LPA for consent purposes, and that Just Checking cannot be relevant to assessment, given 24hr care, when it can’t distinguish the woman’s movements from the carers’.
