How will my application be assessed?
When you register on My Move, you will have the option to select your requirements for Extra Care housing, including whether you have a medical need to move. When you complete the application with your Extra Care requirements, a medical form will automatically be sent for you to fill in.
When you return the form, an occupational therapist working in partnership with My Move Oldham will review your answers. If you are eligible for Extra Care housing your application will be passed to Adult Social Care, who will complete a full assessment to ensure that you meet the requirements for Extra Care services.
