Waiting time

Just asking if anyone has any idea of the waiting time for assessment in the Gloucester area. I was hoping it would be paper based, asking for my husband as he has been diagnosed with young onset dementia ( Alzheimer’s) 

any help would be much appreciated

    Hello @Jamhan
     
    Sorry that nobody has been able to offer any advice so far. How are you and your husband getting on? Did his assessment come through? 

    Let us know if we can still help in any way.

    That's because the member didn't return to answer the question that was asked. Waiting times for benefits are different depending on which benefit it's related to.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
