There are over 700,000 people on the UK with dementia and over the next 30 years this is expected to double. The Legion recognises the need of dedicated care for our beneficiaries and their carers that are living with dementia.
"The number of people with dementia is set to increase considerably over the next few years, which is why the Legion will be expanding its range of services to the elderly and vulnerable. Meeting the demand for dementia services is now more important than ever."Laura Morton, Head of Care Services
Support in your home
The Legion provides a community service through Admiral Nurses to support the carers of those living with dementia in the Armed Forces community.
Our Nurses provide information, support and practical help to relieve commonly experienced issues such as stress and depression to enable people to better support their loved ones living with the condition.
