DementiaUK has released a video that highlights the work of their Admiral Nurses.  The nurses in this program specialize in mental health and dementia and seek to improve the quality of life for people with dementia and their carers.  The video introduces us to the touching story of Helen, who has been caring for her husband, who suffers from dementia, for over 9 years.  The video the highlights how the efforts of Rachel, the Admiral Nurse assigned to Helen’s case, has helped her maximize her the quality of life  and of her husband.

Take a few minutes to watch this video, which  provides a glimpse of the way in which those who care for the elderly impact their lives everyday.
