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?
Our staff members are very understanding and we take our customer service very seriously. We will always open doors for customers and offer help down our steps out of the shop.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
None - its basic customer care.
Improve our understanding of Dementia
We will arrange for all staff to be dementia aware to ensure greater understanding of the condition and how we can help.
Work in partnership with Newmarket DAA
Busy Bee will work with the Newmarket Dementia Action Alliance to support Newmarket to become a dementia friendly community and encourage other organisations to attend Dementia Friends sessions and sign up to the Dementia Action Alliance.
- Being implemented
Promoting dementia awareness
