There will be a staggering one million people living with dementia in the UK by 2025.
Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support for families through their Admiral Nurse service which is being promoted on pharmacy bags in over 400 pharmacies in London and the West Midlands.
When things get challenging or difficult for people with dementia and their families, Admiral Nurses work alongside them. They give the compassionate one-to-one support, guidance and practical solutions people need that can be hard to find elsewhere.
Admiral Nurses are continually trained, developed and supported by Dementia UK. Families that have their support have someone truly expert and caring by their side. They are a lifeline helping families to live more positively with dementia in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear.
Dementia UK believe that everyone who needs the support of a specialist dementia nurse should get one, and they’re working hard to increase the number of Admiral Nurses across the UK.
Anyone struggling to cope with impact of dementia on their lives can contact the Dementia UK Admiral Nurses helpline on 0800 888 6678 or visit www.dementiauk.org
