About us

We’re Dementia UK - the specialist dementia nursing charity that is there for the whole family.

Every three minutes someone in the UK develops dementia. Today there are over 900,000 people living with the condition, but it doesn't just impact the person with the diagnosis – everyone around them is affected in some way.That’s why Dementia UK is here.

Our specialist nurses, known as Admiral Nurses, provide life-changing advice and support, to anyone affected by dementia, whenever it’s needed. Families are offered reassurance, understanding and a listening ear that helps them feel more in control.

With the support of an Admiral Nurse and Dementia UK - whether it’s on our Helpline, through our virtual or face-to-face clinics, or in the community - families we support know they’re not alone.

We’re here to make sure no-one has to face dementia alone.
