Our Admiral Nurse service

What is an Admiral Nurse?

Admiral Nurses provide the specialist dementia support that families need. When things get challenging or difficult, our nurses work alongside the entire family, giving them one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions.

The unique dementia expertise and experience an Admiral Nurse brings is a lifeline – it helps families to live more positively with dementia in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear.

Information and advice about dementia

We have a series of free information leaflets about dementia for you to read or download. They’re all written by our specialist dementia nurses and put together in response to the questions we hear on our Dementia Helpline and out in the community.
