Hi all, thanks for reading my post. A bit of background: my mum had her first TIA in Feb '15 and almost immediately I noticed a change in her and described it to her GP as behaviour I'd seen in my grandma in her later years (80s with diagnosed dementia) the GP said it was just the TIA and she'd get better. Cut to September when her memory was causing issues and the same GP did a basic test and referred her to our local memory clinic. This GP has left the surgery and another we've seen since has mentioned they suspect dementia. Anyway back to the reason for this post... How long did you wait between referral and appointment? We're currently at 16 weeks from the acknowledgement letter from the hospital arriving to today with nothing more, I chased at 12 weeks and was told to allow another 8 weeks. We're both struggling to deal with the not knowing; as an only child my mum is a single parent it's quite a bit to cope with and I hope diagnosis will result in knowledge and support from health care and social care.
