Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline
The Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline is for anyone with a question or concern about dementia. 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.
The Admiral Nurses on our Dementia Helpline are here to help you get your loved one the best possible care. You can access specialist practical and emotional advice by phone or email.

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 one of the rarer types. 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.
What happens when I call?
Our Admiral Nurses will listen to you and give advice and support.
You can take your time. There’s no time limit – many people call for more than 45 minutes – and you can call back whenever you need us
If suitable, you’ll receive a tailored information pack after your call which will be sent out in the post or by email.
At my lowest ebb, someone suggested I ring an Admiral Nurse. I had never heard of them but I rang. I firmly believe the nurse who talked to me for an hour on the phone saved my life.
