1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

  1. We are keen to become involved in and join the alliance to learn more about dementia and how we can help.
  2. Improving staff awareness and understanding of dementia, thereby having a good customer service ethos and training for our staff. For example if a person with dementia develops behaviour that challenges others, our staff will take time to understand why they are acting in this way and help them try to avoid it.
  3. Have a willingness to respond to the individual’s needs and help/support them when we can and it is reasonable for us to do so.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Having access to dementia awareness information in an accessible format that can be shared with our team.
