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?
As an organisation we can offer a bespoke service. We can adapt to the changing needs of our customers as and when they happen. This allows the customer to stay in control of what they want when living with dementia and choosing to live at home. We can work closely with carers and next of kin to ensure we react to any changes in a timely manner. We offer support to the next of kin and/or carer through way of a safe and well check. We will report back to a specific person if changes in behavior/wellbeing are identified.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Ensuring we receive any update in change of circumstance early enough is the only way we can respond to changes promptly. Fostering a supportive relationship with outside organisations can be a challenge. Receiving information from individuals that have little or no support network is an even bigger challenge. If individuals are living alone and have no specified help or support, there is little or no way to ensure they receive additional outside help.

Attend relevant training and development days to better understand the varied situations some people face.
By understanding our customers needs we will be able to highlight and adapt to their requirements more efficiently.
Further training for company drivers.
Implementing training for new and existing drivers to recognise early signs of dementia. This could help prompt individuals to find relevant support locally.
Use company literature to sign post local support.
Using the map on the back of the company brochure we could sign post to local (area specific) dementia support groups. From doctors to memory café’s any person picking up a brochure will see what is available to them in the region.
