Dementia doesn’t just impact the person with the diagnosis – everyone around them, from family members to friends, is affected in some way. Because if you love someone living with dementia, you’re living with it too.
That’s the message behind our ‘I live with dementia’ campaign and one that our specialist dementia nurses – known as Admiral Nurses – know all too well.
Our campaign video demonstrates how dementia can change everything: relationships, responsibilities, personalities and perceptions. We’re spotlighting three families whose lives have been affected through their loved ones’ diagnosis.
We are Dementia UK – the specialist dementia nurse charity.
Our nurses, known as Admiral Nurses, who we continually support and develop, provide life-changing care for families affected by all forms of dementia – including Alzheimer’s disease.
Our nurses are here when people need help. They have the time to listen and the knowledge to solve problems. As dementia specialists, Admiral Nurses help families manage complex needs – considering the person living with dementia and the people around them – and they can advise other healthcare professionals.
For families affected by dementia, they can be a lifeline.
