Many thanks to everyone for their help and support.
Good idea about explaining the 'need' to record the assessment because of previous bullying.
I know the new care manager, Lola, is bringing someone with her, also from social services, and hope it's not a woman known in disability circles in the borough as 'Bullying Bev', with whom I've had run ins in the past. As the nick-name suggests she's a serial bully. However, I had been informed by one of my nursing friends, Jacqui, that I can 'decline' to have someone in my home that has bullied me on previous occassions. Can anyone confirm this is the case, the last thing I want is to be 'swaping' one bully for another?
