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 healthcare providers we are working towards a dementia friendly organisation. We have a dementia champion on site who has worked with staff delivering dementia friends sessions to promote knowledge and awareness within the team. This will help support our staff to deliver the best service with service users living with dementia.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Not all staff have awareness of Dementia as they are not from a medical or clinical background. However we aim to over come this with the dementia friends sessions.
