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?

Providing solutions to care homes that meet individuals needs more effectively. Creating opportunities for residents to live meaningfully and with a purpose.

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

The challenge for the business is to pursuade care homes that meeting residents needs and aspirations effectively not only saves them time, but actually improves the health and well being of residents and their families. Furthermore it makes business sense as happier residents helps staff. In addition, staff retention is improved. Finally, but not least it will help market the home to fill vacancies through word of mouth.

2. Actions

  • Develop a programme that stimulates residents

    The business would need to get to know residents sufficiently well to tailor a specific activity that would help the resident to engage effectivly. This would be done in conjunction with family members and staff  where needed to identify what would work for that individual.

  • Collate evidence on the impact of effective engagement with residents

    This is about collating evidence that measures residents health and wellbeing. I plan to measure at start then revisit homes or ask the home to collate the follow up data six weeks later. This will help push the importance of effective engagement higher up the agenda both with managers/owners of care homes and some statutory bodies.

  • Working in partnership to maximise opportunities and choices for residents

    I plan to build a wide group of partners to be in a position to pair up suitable projects for different homes depending on the feedback collated from residents, families and staff.
