Every three minutes, someone in the UK develops dementia. Each family will have its own unique experiences of the condition – and every day, new and complex challenges can emerge.
We hear time and time again from families who receive little or no support after a loved one is diagnosed with dementia. Many struggle to know where to turn and are left feeling exhausted, overwhelmed and alone.
We desperately need more specialist dementia nurses
Admiral Nurses are experts in dementia and are a lifeline when families need it most. Their knowledge and experience means they can help families manage complex needs, and they take the time to truly get to know the person with dementia and their family, providing the practical tips, guidance and emotional support they so desperately need.
We believe that families affected by dementia in all areas of the UK should have timely support from an Admiral Nurse – but right now, there simply aren’t enough to reach every family that needs them. There are currently 434 Admiral Nurses throughout the UK. If we are to support these families when they need it most, we need to increase the number of Admiral Nurses to at least 1,000.
Our vision is to grow the number of nurses so we can be there for everyone who needs us.
Would you consider making a donation today, so that together, we can take a step closer to reaching our target of helping every family affected by dementia access specialist nursing support?
