Dear All Back in September I took my mother to see her GP with memory concerns, and she did the basic memory tests. Then we saw a nurse who did a whole medical exam and extensive blood tests. Then came 3 x 1.5hr lots of in depth testing at home with the Memory Clinic people. Then there was another 2 assessments to see how she was coping in the house by Occupational Therapy. After a CT and an ECG, my mother has been referred on from the Memory Clinic and now needs assessment by a Community Psychiatric Nurse. This will need more than one session. She mentioned a care needs assessment and a Carers assessment. I phoned up the Psychiatric nurse to find out what was going on and why we had not had any results of all this testing. She said she had to contact someone else about this.......Is this normal? The anxiety of waiting for a diagnosis is awful!
