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?

It can be overwhelming, wondering where to start when first considering care for a loved one. We are here to help; here to provide the support needed for loved ones to stay safe at home without losing any personal freedom - leaving family members happy and confident that their loved ones are enjoying the highest standards of care at all times.

A well established and highly respected independent UK home care provider, Home Instead Senior Care is part of a worldwide organisation devoted to providing the highest-quality care for older people in the comfort of their own homes. We offer a wide range of one-to-one services tailormade to the needs of the individual - and home visits can be from an hour a day up to 24 -7 care that includes weekends and holidays.

 

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

There are 750,000 people with dementia in the UK. By 2021 there will be over 940,000 people living with dementia and this will soar to 1.7 million by 2050.

One in three people over 65 will die with dementia.

More than 60 per cent of all care home residents, aged over 65, have a form of dementia.

There are over 16,000 people under 65 with dementia in the UK.

These are not just statistics; they represent millions of families with loved ones who require special care, both at home and in nursing homes.

If you are struggling to care for a loved one with dementia it is important to remember you are not alone.
