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?
To promote understanding and awareness
To provide a safespace in the community
To ensure staff have correct and timely training.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
There are not always enough dementia friendly spaces in the community which we really want to strive to change.
We want to work closely within the community.
Making as many places as we can dementia friendly
Promote our community space with the coop and also our own upstairs area to raise awareness and hold community events.
We are going to work with coop to have a monthly afternoon tea in the community space that is inclusive.
To give staff confidence when working with different types of dementia.
Registered Manager will deliver a dementia training session monthly upstairs in our space. This will be open to staff, clients and general public. We will provide information on our social media.
