It’s Time for a Cuppa week is 1st-8th May in aid of Dementia UK.
With all that has been going on over the last year it has been easy to forget all the people who are suffering from Dementia so Dementia UK are trying to raise awareness by making 1st-8th May as Dementia UK’s Time for a Cuppa Week.
Whether you want to run, trek, cycle, bake or do your own thing to raise funds for them, your support will help them provide more Admiral Nurses, so families facing dementia get the help they need. Every single penny helps.
About Dementia UK –
Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support for families through our Admiral Nurse service.
When things get challenging or difficult for people with dementia and their families, Admiral Nurses work alongside them. They give the compassionate one-to-one support, guidance and practical solutions people need, and that can be hard to find elsewhere.
Admiral Nurses are continually trained, developed and supported by Dementia UK. Families that have their support have someone truly expert and caring by their side. They are a lifeline helping families to live more positively with dementia in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear.
We believe that everyone who needs the support of a specialist dementia nurse should get one, and we’re working hard to increase the number of Admiral Nurses across the UK.
Why Admiral Nursing?
Admiral Nurses were named by the family of Joseph Levy CBE BEM, who founded the charity. Joseph had vascular dementia and was known affectionately as “Admiral Joe” because of his love of sailing.
