Admiral Nursing




About us


Admiral Nurses are mental health nurses specialising in dementia care, working collaboratively with health and social care professionals and voluntary organisations to improve the experience of those affected by dementia.

Admiral Nurses offer individualised support for family carers primarily and in partnership with people living with Dementia. This entails a comprehensive assessment of need and provision of a range of therapeutic approaches designed to promote emotional well being. Admiral Nurses improve family carer’s knowledge and understanding of the experience of dementia and enhance skills in coping with changing symptoms.

Admiral Nurses work in partnership with the national charity Dementia UK. Dementia UK promote monthly practice development opportunities for Admiral Nurses and clinical supervision to support the development of Admiral Nursing. Dementia UK also provide access to a national help line Admiral Nursing Direct.
