Admiral nurses are registered mental health nurses who specialise in interventions for people with dementia. Our role also extends to supporting the carers of people with dementia, such as their husbands, wives, son, and daughters. In certain areas, we also work with staff in care homes to help train them in dementia care and we provide education to help carers understand the symptoms and the types of behaviours that sometimes present. We assist carers in accessing services. That can involve anything from telling them what services are available, to acting as advocates for them if they have trouble in talking to other professionals, and if they have trouble expressing their needs.
