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?

Starlite Events Ltd and Rugeley Progressive Working Men’s Club are part of the local community and support’s the National Dementia Declaration outcomes.

The Club provides facilities for the Community with much needed meeting and activity space for a variety of users and local organisations as well as for its own members.

Activities such as indoor and outdoor bowling which is a lifelong sport, crib, darts, and domino teams and social events.

The club membership includes people living with dementia and their carers.

We will aim to increase public awareness of Dementia amongst the membership of the Club and amongst other Clubs in the area as well as other organisations who use the Club for their day to day operations.

We will also work with local organisations who work directly with people who may have dementia (e.g. Mase).

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

Starlite Events Ltd and Rugeley Progressive Working Men’s Club must train its own staff to be Dementia aware, as well as making sure that its premises are user friendly.
