Question

What happens if I don’t feel like seeing my worker on a scheduled appointment day?

Answer

It would be appreciated if you can give as much cancellation notice as possible. Your worker will use some of the scheduled time to do other duties they are responsible for. These hours can also carry over to other weeks and can be rescheduled.
