Community Buddies

We offer in home support to enable people supported by ourselves to achieve their optimum state of health and well-being. Treat all people supported by us and all people who always work here with respect. Support individual choice and personal decision-making as the right of all service users. Recognise the individual need for personal fulfillment and offer individualised programs of meaningful activity to satisfy that need of service users and staff. We base all support around the individual and person centre all support needs around their capacity and life style. We offer a Dementia Day Centre, Monday to Friday 10.00am - 3.30pm.

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 our ethos is a person living with Dementis is always at the centre of all statements. We as an organisation represent everyone living with any types of Dementia regardless of age, stage, or severity. We work very closley with all family members and build up a good repore and understanding of how life was before Dementia, as building on this information to person centre our support for all future support.

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

Many challenges can be the acceptance of Dementia, from the person suffering with Dementia, or their family. A lot of the time familes can be very frightened, confused of the stigma that can come with Dementia. This can be the fear of loosing friends and family members, the unknown and 'can they cope'. Our role is to give guidance and support from day 1.
