Find an Admiral Nurse

Dementia UK is the specialist dementia nurse charity. Our nurses, called Admiral Nurses, provide life-changing support for families affected by all forms of dementia – including Alzheimer’s disease.

As dementia specialists, Admiral Nurses help families manage complex needs – considering the person living with dementia and the people around them – and they can advise other healthcare professionals too.

Most of our Admiral Nurses work in local community services, groups of GP practices and NHS hospitals. They also run our free Dementia Helpline on 0800 888 6678 (Monday-Friday 9am-9pm, Saturday and Sunday 9am-5pm, every day except Christmas Day) or

We have Admiral Nurses throughout the UK, but we cannot currently reach everyone who needs our support. Dementia UK relies entirely on donations to support and develop our Admiral Nurses. We do not receive any government funding.

The good news is that you can help. There are many easy and fun ways to support Dementia UK – read more about how you can support us here.
