Care Assessment Wait Reduces

Local Authorities have cut care and assessment waiting lists by 60,000 since last summer and are arranging more home care, but continue to struggle with mounting need.

That was the message from the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) as it released the results of its latest survey of member councils.

Directors reported that 434,243 people were waiting for assessments, care packages, direct payments or reviews as of 31 March 2023, down 12% on the 491,663 ADASS recorded for the end of August 2022.
