Admiral Nurse Service (Dementia Support)

About

The Royal British Legion Admiral Nurses offers specialist support, information and advice to the carers of people with dementia. Admiral Nurses are registered nurses specialising in dementia. The service aims to help family carers gain the necessary skills to assist with dementia care, promote positive approaches in living well with dementia and improving quality of life. The service has been developed in partnership with Dementia UK, a national charity which promotes and develops Admiral Nursing.
