How we can support you

Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline

The Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline provides information, advice and support with any aspect of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease.

Whether you have a question that needs an immediate answer or need emotional support when life feels overwhelming, our dementia specialist Admiral Nurses have the time to listen and the knowledge to solve problems.

Situations when you might prefer to contact the Helpline:

  • if you need to speak to a nurse more urgently
  • if you would like to speak to a nurse in the evenings or over the weekend
  • if you prefer to use the phone rather than make a virtual face-to-face appointment
