The Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline is for anyone with a question or concern about dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
From looking out for the first symptoms of Alzheimer’s, to understanding the challenges of living with someone with vascular dementia, our specialist Admiral Nurses have the knowledge and experience to understand the situation and suggest answers that might be hard to find elsewhere.
Please note that the Helpline will be closed during the festive period on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day.

Who is the Dementia Helpline for?
The people who most often contact us are families caring for someone with dementia, whether that be Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, or another type of dementia. But the Helpline is also available to people with a diagnosis of dementia, those worried about their memory or the memory of a loved one, and professionals working in dementia care. We’re here for anyone who needs one-to-one support and practical solutions.
