It’s been a year now since Hospiscare partnered with Dementia UK to sponsor a new role within Hospiscare - an Admiral Nurse (specialist dementia nurse).
During this time Chrissy, our Admiral Nurse, has been working to provide the specialist dementia support that families require. She has worked with 30 families offering psychological support and expert advice and guidance to enable them and their loved one living with a dementia to be able to adapt and prepare for the changes that occur within the dementia trajectory.
Chrissy uses a range of techniques to help people live positively, develop skills to improve communication and to maintain family relationships. She also works with other healthcare professionals so that people's differing needs are addressed in a coordinated way.
Hospiscare is a local charity, providing free, high quality care and support to people with any type of life-limiting illness, and those close to them, in Exeter, Mid and East Devon. A gift to Hospiscare in your Will helps to ensure the future of the charity in Devon for generations to come.
