Through the process of assessment Devon is identifying whether the person meets the
National Eligibility Criteria that is laid out in the Care Act 2014.
There are 3 parts to the criteria and the person must meet all 3 parts.
1) They must have a physical or mental illness or impairment that means that they are unable to achieve two of ten outcome areas.
2) These outcome areas cover amongst other areas personal care, managing a home, access to employment and parenting a child.
3) The 3rd part is that by not achieving those 2 or more outcomes it must be having a significant impact upon the person’s wellbeing.
For full details including all 10 outcome areas please go to the Care Act guidance on the gov.uk website.
