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?

Here at Abbey we believe in our mission statement "Unique people Unique care" Our aim is to support each individual by providing bespoke care. Person centred planning involving family members and other professional bodies to help us achieve our aim.

We aim to promote the Alzheimers Society within our company to promote understanding of Dementia related issues. We firmly believe by offering each worker specialised training it leads to a better understanding of the Service User they serve and quality training leads to quality care.

We aim to offer flexibility, adapting to meet each individuals needs and help each person retain dignity, choice and personalisation and remain part of their community.

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

Although public awareness has increased significantly, basic understanding is still limited. The increasing number of Service users with Dementia. Being able to meet the changing needs of our Service Users to enable them to remain at home particularly as they become more challenging.
