    i've replied to your query on another post, but as regards this upcoming assessment you can see more about it here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/social-care-and-support-guide/help-from-social-services-and-charities/getting-a-needs-assessment/
    It's really just looking at practical solutions for yourself & identifying where you may struggle with any activities of daily living. Perhaps have someone with you for support, or having looked through this link, you could write some notes beforehand about where you need the most help with your daily activities to ensure that all the important aspects are looked at. This may mean you don't have to talk as much if you've already got this written down or printed out.

    Hi @Beggy321, sorry that's happened, it must be really difficult for you. We are here if you need to vent about things.

    Did social services give any ideas about what else you could try if the carers won't come?
