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?

SRS Care is committed to achieving better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers through our commitment to provide a platinum service. We provide person-centred care packages enabling people to live in the familiarity and comfort of their own home, ensuring their safety and security at all times. We always provide a bespoke care plan and recognise that different people with dementia require different services and a different approach. Our staff are trained and supported in the field. We work with CCG’s, families, occupational therapists and any other organisations to achieve best practice in the care of the customer.

We are committed to making sure our staff are trained effectively and fully supported when they are looking after people living with dementia. We also recognise the need to support the families and carer’s of our clients.

SRS Care is working towards providing a support network with community organisations to improve the quality of life of our dementia customers and the support for our staff. This relies open transparency between our staff, families and other organisations to make sure relevant information is shared for the best outcome of the client.

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

Establishing and maintaining links to community organisations that enhance the lives of our clients.

Ensuring good management support systems are in place to assist our care workers, enabling them to share information with staff and their colleagues.

Encouraging family and friends to take an active role in are and support.

Ensuring people with dementia are empowered to make their own decisions about their care and enabling those decisions in a safe and secure way. Setting up a small support network for each client and ensuring the continual sharing of relevant information within that network.

Challenging misconceptions and preconceived ideas amongst staff and other people about people living with dementia and their ability to lead an independent life. Providing the support to allow people to make their own informed decisions.
