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?
We will ensure that staff, volunteers and service users affected by dementia are included and supported by our processes and facilities.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
The main challenge is finding sufficient time to implement the desired changes.
Signage to be changed throughout to include pictures, and ensure there is signage for exits of rooms as well.
All tenants will be emailed to talk about what to do when one of their staff members is affected by dementia, and put them in contact with the Dementia Friendly Communities Coordinator if they need advice.
Dementia Friends Sessions
We will host biannual Dementia Friends sessions for in-house organisations as well as the public.
