East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust says its new Admiral nurse, Hannah Gardner, will help to support patients with dementia and their families.

The role, launched with support and funding from the charity Dementia UK, has been created to help families and provide them with additional care and support.

Based at the trust’s Lister Hospital, it is one of an increasing number of Admiral posts being introduced across the country by the charity and in a range of settings.

Speaking about her role, Ms Gardner said: “Working with Dementia UK is an amazing opportunity. It will allow me to work closely with those who have dementia and their families – offering one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions to challenges.”

She added: “I will also be working with the community Admiral nursing team at Carers in Hertfordshire, to ensure that patients with dementia have a supported pathway from admission into hospital to when they’re discharged.”

Charlotte Harris, business development officer for East Midlands and East Anglia at Dementia UK, said: “I’m delighted to have this new Admiral nurse service at the Lister hospital.

“It’s truly a great opportunity to start providing specialist dementia support across different care settings, with a community Admiral nurse service also being run with our partners at Carers in Hertfordshire,” she noted.

“Admiral nurses allow families in Hertfordshire to face dementia with more confidence and it is our aim that one day, every family that needs this specialist care will have one,” she added.
