New admiral nurses will support carers in Armed Forces

A UNIQUE service to support the carers of those with dementia within the Armed Forces community is to be launched in Walsall.

Specially trained in dementia care, the Legion’s Admiral Nurse Service will support the carers of those with dementia within the Armed Forces community, providing them with information, support and practical help.
