Admiral Nurses are specialist dementia nurses who provide amazing support to people with dementia and their families.
At MacIntyre we have significant expertise in supporting people who have a learning disability and are also living with dementia.
Two years ago, we started a pilot programme in collaboration with Dementia UK, combining our expertise and employing the first Learning Disabilities Admiral Nurse in the country to specialise in the field of learning disabilities.
We’re delighted to share that this is now a substantive position and we are looking for a specialist Learning Disability Nurse to become our permanent Admiral Nurse.
Our current Admiral Nurse is leaving with regret and has this to say about her work with MacIntyre:
To be a pioneer in this role has been an amazing experience. The role has enabled me to develop further as a practitioner whilst ensuring people with learning disabilities who have a diagnosis of dementia can continue to live their best life. Knowing this work is going to continue to support those who need specialist dementia support gives hope to many!
