Dementia UK

We provide Admiral Nurses to support families affected by dementia

Charity Registration No. 1039404

Story

  • There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK.
  • 225,000 people will develop dementia this year, that's one every three minutes.
  • £27 could pay for a brand new Admiral Nurse for an hour.
  • £500 could allow two Admiral Nurses to take Helpline calls all day on a Sunday, when other services are closed.
  • £1,000 could pay for a brand new Admiral Nurse for an entire week.

Unfortunately my family have been significantly affected by dementia and it really is a horrible disease that as yet, has no cure.  Professional support can make a huge difference to the quality of life for not only the patient, but also for family and friends.

Please give what you can to help raise money for Dementia UK who provide Admiral Nurses to support families affected by dementia.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit this page.
