Facts about Admiral Nurses:
Admiral Nurses can support families from the point of diagnosis to post bereavement.  Registered nurses, can to work with families who have complex needs and provide specialist support and advice, giving families the knowledge to understand the condition and its effects, and the skills to improve communication and behaviours. They also provide specialist emotional and psychological support through periods of difficulty in the dementia journey when carers are under the most stress and in danger of suffering breakdown e.g at diagnosis; through physical and behavioural changesmoving a loved one into residential care; during end of life and bereavement.

The majority of Admiral Nurses work within the NHS supporting people in the community. Admiral Nurses, however also work in other care settings such as acute hospitals, care homes, end of life care, and in the community supported by voluntary organisations or home care services.
