    Yes, there shouldn't be any problems with that, i've heard of people having their assessments in their bedrooms before. Good luck.

    Sorry to learn about your wife's relapse.

    As poppy rightly states, no probes with using bedroom.

    Your wife can object to any kind of physical examination, if she thinks it might impact on her.

    Good luck and please let us know how you get on.

    Best wishes

    Yes it is entirely possible. However you will have to provide substantial evidence to support your request.

    Bernie1's request to the assessing company for the assessment to take place in the bedroom.
