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 are a firm of Solicitors in the town centre, through training/awareness sessions we will improve our customer services on how to recognise the signs of a customer that may have dementia/vulnerability. We would be able to support them if need be.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We would like to have a couple of key people attend an awareness/training session and they can then pass their learning onto their colleagues. We do have people here who are used to attending to the needs of elderly and in some cases, potentially vulnerable, clients and they should therefore have a basic understanding, but some specialist advice would be welcome.
Improve our understanding of Dementia
We will arrange for all staff/volunteers to be dementia aware to ensure greater understanding of the condition and how we can help.
Work in partnership with Newmarket DAA
Edmondson Hall 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
