Dementia UK have launched a new partnership with The Lewy Body Society to offer expert advice and information on Lewy body dementia through their Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline.

Lewy body dementia is the second most common form of age-related neurodegenerative dementia. It is thought that around 130,000 people in the UK are living with this common, but little known, disease.

Now, when anyone affected by Lewy body dementia, whether they are a person living with the disease or a carer for a relative or friend, calls the Lewy Body Society, they will be directed to the Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline for advice and support.

Dementia Helpline is for anyone with a question or concern about dementia. It is staffed seven days a week by specialist dementia nurses, Admiral Nurses, and is free to call on 0800 888 6678.
