There are currently over 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK, and this is expected to increase to 1 million by 2025, and 1.4 million by 2040.
In response to this, Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support for families through our Admiral Nurse service. When things get challenging or difficult for people with dementia and their families, Admiral Nurses work alongside them, giving the one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions that people need. The unique dementia expertise and experience an Admiral Nurse brings is a lifeline – it helps everyone in the family to live more positively with dementia in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear.
The Clinic Admiral Nurse will work in a designated geographical area, offering expert support and guidance to carers of family members facing dementia through our Admiral Nurse Clinic. Our clinics service offer is part of Dementia UK’s strategic plan to ensure as many families as possible have access to an Admiral Nurse.
The Clinic Admiral Nurse will be responsible for delivering clinics within a defined geographical area to develop, set up and provide local Admiral Nurse clinics. The Admiral Nurse Clinic will be available for carers within the defined area that have been identified as needing support and thereby encouraged to utilise the service. The post holder will provide one off appointments (that can be re-booked) to families via telephone, video consultation and face to face within the agreed clinic setting. The post holder will also work within the agreed setting/ location to provide specialist advice, best practice and support to colleagues and Health Care professionals, as appropriate.
