Dementia Support

Admiral Nurse Dementia Support in Lincolnshire.

St Barnabas Hospice, working in partnership with Dementia UK and Lincolnshire County Council are proud to launch this new service for Dementia patients and their families.


Admiral Nurses are all qualified nurses with a professional specialism in dementia. Admiral Nurses work together with families to provide the one- to one support, expert guidance and practical solutions they need to live more positively with dementia each and every day.

Their clinical knowledge and skills help prevent crisis and build carers resilience which in turn supports families to maintain quality of life and a sense of control. They also work alongside other professionals in the dementia care pathway, sharing best practice.
