Had one some years ago, useless.
Got told unless I wanted a break and my caree agreed to accept services I wasnt entitled to anything.

Could you please ask Emma,because of the cut backs many of the people that do the carers assessments
are possibly going to lose their jobs,does that mean that the wait to have an assessment or review of one is
going to take a lot longer than it has in the past.Thankyou.

Its  daunting knowing  now that I cant retire at 60 and will have to continue working till I am 67, and caring just the same as I have done for the last 30 plus years.

Please get thinking of the question you would like to ask Emma on Monday.
It's not long now to wait, this is a great opportunity for us, and Emma is very friendly.
