“I truly hope that every family experiencing dementia who is without an Admiral Nurse finds their ‘angel’, as I did.” – Family carer, Alf.
Please help recruit and support more Admiral Nurses
Every three minutes, someone discovers that a person they love has dementia.
Nothing can truly prepare families for how dementia can turn their lives upside down. But Dementia UK makes sure they don’t have to cope alone.
Our Admiral Nurses provide the specialist dementia support that families need. They make sure that a family understands what dementia is and how it is affecting the person they love at every stage. They offer specialist assessments, counselling, advice and support.
There are 229 Admiral Nurses working in communities across the country and on our Helpline, but they simply cannot meet the demand for their expertise.
That’s why we are launching an urgent appeal to recruit and train three more Admiral Nurses in the next three months.
Your gift today could help to ensure that people like Alf aren’t left to struggle alone. Three nurses would be able to support around two hundred families, like Alf’s, every year.
