Waiting time

Hello, I am new to the forum and currently I am looking after my 86 year old mother who is experiencing increasing memory problems. My mother lives in her own house & copes quite well (I visit frequently and have taken over many of weekly needs- bills, housekeeping etc).
I am concerned with the increasing short term memory loss. I have taken Mum to the doctor to begin the process of getting a diagnosis. To cut a long story short, it is now five weeks since the appointment and nothing further has been heard in terms of further diagnosis/treatment/help (as promised by the doctor). Can anyone tell me how long it is normal to wait & is there anything else I can do? I have to cope alone with my mother and need some support.

Thanks in advance,

Philip
