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?

Our Home Instead model of care, supporting people in their own homes, lends itself particularly to those living with Dementia due to our provision of consistent Caregivers building meaningful relationships and looking out for our clients broader wellbeing.  We liaise as much as possible with other other organisations locally, to signpost our clients to hepful services.  We also support families and partners needing respite and try to work as a team with them for the best interest of their loved one.

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

Having enough time to network and ensure we get to know all the relevant and helpful services available is a challenge, as well as sometimes our clients be able to afford the ideal amount of time they would like our visits for.
