We work in partnership with Dementia UK to provide Admiral Nurses – a specialist service helping the Armed Forces community and their families living with dementia.

We know that when you’re caring for someone with dementia it can be hard to find the time to look after yourself. Our Admiral Nurses are there to support you, and those you’re caring for, get the help you need.

The support Admiral Nurses provide can be a lifeline, helping to maintain independence and improve quality of life for carers and families.

Where are we?

Our nurses are currently operating in Lancashire, the West Midlands, Hampshire, Somerset, South Wales, Leeds, Bradford and the city of Liverpool. We can offer families:

  • Skilled assessments to determine the needs of both the individual with dementia and their carer
  • Guidance on how to care for someone with dementia
  • Emotional and psychological support for carers and families
  • Help to develop skills to encourage positive approaches to living with dementia
  • Information and practical advice for carers and families
  • Help to access services and support from other organisations

Our Admiral Nurses support serving and ex-serving personnel and their families – this can either be the person with dementia or their carer.

We are there to help you every step of the way from diagnosis, to being there to help with difficult decisions, to supporting someone who may need to go into full-time care and beyond. 

Find out more about how we can help by calling our helpline on 0808 802 8080.
