1. Action Plan
We work closely with Health professionals and Carers in the community to help build independence within the homes of people living with dementia. As part of our commitment to both our customers and their families we help enable people to stay in their own homes for as long as they wish by supporting with minor and major adaptions around the home.
We continually call customers, Carers and health professionals for feedback to help us continually improve our services. We learn from this if there are any actions we need to improve on and follow through with all colleagues to ensure awareness of these actions.
As an organisation we are committed to helping the community by supporting and understanding the needs of both our customers, their families and general public who live with Dementia. We run Dementia friends sessions from our Independence centre in Bristol
Review Processes and Procedures
Most of our colleagues have had Dementia friend sessions to highlight living with dementia and have an understanding and awareness of the disease. All frontline colleagues are dementia friends and feel more at ease when visiting people in their homes. Continue to hold dementia friends sessions for both our colleagues and general public
With the help of Tony Hall from Bristol Dementia Action Alliance we are looking at improving our home independence centre and our offices to help become more Dementia friendly.
