It seems they can cancel at a moment's notice, but it's a different story if we need to cancel or change the date. Perhaps for your next assessment give them a ring before you leave the house to make sure everything is ok to go ahead.

Try to get support from you social worker for a home assessment, have somebody with you throughout the assessment.
