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?

Collectively we can make a huge difference by sharing best practice and better communicating to the wider community the challenges and solutions relating to living with dementia.

By pooling experiences, as members we can identify trends and common themes amongst our clients, prioritise those findings then proceed to work on a plan than addresses the most common issues.

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

I personally don’t perceive there to be any challenges (where there is a will, there is a way) to implementing agreed actions. One potential area may be around raising awareness among diverse communities where dementia is not fully recognised. e.g. parts of the Asian community

2. Actions

    Ensure our systems allow us to recruit the right people for roles as care givers, and that they are supported effectively to provide personalised care for any client living with dementia. We will also ensure that every new CAREGiver receives appropriate training.
