Carers assessment / Direct payments

Hi, I have been a full time carer for my partner for nearly 10 years after he suffered a stroke along with other health problems. At the time our children were 6, 7 and 9. Over the past 2 years his condition has become a lot worse, He doesn’t have any home carers I do it all on my own and always have. I was recently asked by a health worker if I have had a carers assessment to which I said I didn’t know? I do recieve carers allowance for him but I have never heard of a carers assessment until now. What is it for and should I of had one years ago?

Carers allowance and carers assessment are different things.
