Clinic Admiral Nurse (Cantonese Speaking)
We are expecting the specialist dementia support service for the London Chinese community to be up and running from mid-August.
The Clinic Admiral Nurse will work within the clinics team at Dementia UK and, in collaboration with the Chinese Welfare Trust, will offer expert support and guidance to carers or family members from Chinese/South East Asian backgrounds affected by dementia living in the 5 London Boroughs, Camden, Brent, Barnet, Westminster and Tower Hamlets.
For more information and how you can support us, please see below.
The mobile phone listed on the poster is reserved for enquiries made to the counselling service only. The current average waiting time is 4 weeks for our Cantonese/Mandarin users of this service. For all other queries, please contact us below.
We make sure we can be there to help when the most vulnerable and elderly in the Chinese community need us most.
The Chinese community is at a disadvantage of not being able to access a 'one-stop-shop' service delivered by a care specialist who speaks their language.
We are hugely proud of the work we have done in the UK, but also recognise we have a long way to go.
We work in care homes, community centres and schools.
When COVID-19 hit, the Chinese Community in UK were turned upside down and racism was on the up. To help, we secured National Lottery Funding to help victims and those most vulnerable.
But there's more to do.
Chinese Welfare Trust is leading the way to deliver the first Chinese-speaking Admiral Nurse in our community to support people with dementia and their carers.
This initiative is delivered in partnership with the national charity Dementia UK. Dementia is a growing area of health and social care concern.
Admiral Nurses work together with families to provide the one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions they need to live more positively with dementia each and every day.
