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?

We would like to a DAA member as we are passionate about helping people to live well with dementia – a high proportion of our clients are over age 65 and as the condition becomes more prevalent we will have ever more involvement with it. We therefore need to be best placed to help those living with dementia and their carers as much as possible and can extend this to our wider community.

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

We have already decided to complete action 1 by the end of April, action 2 by the end of June and action 3 is ongoing but would reassess the impact at least annually by looking at how many information sessions we have led / how many friends we had created, or how many occasions we had interested with local groups about dementia.

2. Actions

  • Become a Dementia Friendly Office

    What we are going to do: I am delivering dementia friends information sessions to all colleagues so that by the end of April we will be a Dementia Friendly office

    Status:
    Implementation
  • Establish and imbed dementia friendly processes

    What we are going to do: We already have guidelines for dealing with elderly and vulnerable people but we are tweaking these to be relevant to those living with dementia. This will enable all staff to better service our clients and others in the community to live well with dementia and better support to carers of those with dementia

    Status:
    Being implemented
  • Encourage local businesses to also become dementia friendly

    We have already decided to complete action 1 by the end of April, action 2 by the end of June and action 3 is ongoing but would reassess the impact at least annually by looking at how many information sessions we have led / how many friends we had created, or how many occasions we had interested with local groups about dementia.
