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?
Action 1 - Green Tree Court will liaise with a local school for a joint Dementia Friends session. This will help pupils understand the disease and the reasons why people may need to come to us for help and assistance.
Action 2 - Assist people to live well with the minimum use of medication. This will involve ongoing discussions with members if the multi-disciplinary team to explore all avenues.
Action 3 - Understand the impact of and central need for end of life care that is appropriate for individuals and those around them. This will involve a holistic approach embracing the whole multi-disciplinary team and those closest to the individual.
This will also involve staff training as appropriate.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We understand that maintaining and achieving these goals is an ongoing process and are committed to exploring all avenues to expand and develop the service we offer. This development includes using the service to raise awareness and have an environment that promotes high quality care to residents and those close to them.
