Its about 18 months since my sister and I noticed mum was getting forgetful when all the presents were mixed up at Christmas and she kept telling us the same things over and over, and nearly a year since we took her to the drs and were referred to her local Memory clinic for more tests. That was a slow process, they were very kind but she sailed through questions like " who is the prime minister" and " which American president was assasinated" as in her words " i love quizzes"
