Hello everyone. I am trying to help my Dad out with my Mum's alzheimer's remotely ( I am based in Aus). We are terribly confused about how the LA assessments work as they seem to vary from LA to LA. Does anyone have any experience with West Sussex and be able to point us in the direction of some guidance? Many thanks for any help.
