This Christmas, will you send a gift of £20 and help families living with dementia get the specialist support they urgently need?
For a carer like Michael, Christmas can be a lonely and difficult time. Michael is caring for his wife Sue, who has Alzheimer’s disease. They’ve been married for 48 years and Sue was always the person that Michael turned to, until dementia robbed him of ‘his’ Sue – his best friend.
With the help of their Admiral Nurse, Lizzie, Michael and Sue have received the practical and emotional support they’ve needed – including bringing the joy of music and Christmas back to their home. This Christmas, your gift could help a family face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear.
We provide specialist dementia support for families through our Admiral Nurse service.
Admiral Nurses are specialists in dementia. There are only 279 Admiral Nurses currently working in the UK and we urgently need more of them – to provide the expertise, reassurance and advice that people living with dementia so desperately need. From helping navigate the healthcare system and accessing local support networks, to the reassurance that carers like Michael need and deserve, Admiral Nurses like Lizzie are often a lifeline for families living with dementia.
Admiral Nurses are continually trained, developed and supported by Dementia UK. Families that have their support have someone truly expert and caring by their side.
Your support can mean that one day, no family will have to face dementia alone.
