Leave a gift in your Will so no one will have to face dementia alone

Dementia is a huge and growing health crisis and it doesn’t just affect people with the diagnosis. The very difficult role of part-time or full-time carer often falls to family members and friends.

Our specialist dementia nurses, known as Admiral Nurses, provide life-changing support to families living with dementia.

They help people with dementia stay independent for longer, and support the people who care for them so they have the strength to cope with the bad days, and the energy to enjoy the good days.

With someone being diagnosed with dementia every three minutes in the UK, we need your help. Leaving a gift in your Will to Dementia UK will help us grow the number of Admiral Nurses so we can support every family affected by dementia far into the future.

An Admiral Nurse was not available at the time but would have been such an enormous support to both my parents and to my sister and myself. I do not want other families to go through what we experienced without the help of a professional who knows and understands. I hope my gift will add volume to the quieter voices of those dealing with this unremitting disease. – Susan, who left a gift in her Will
