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 continue to be an inclusive space for people with dementia, making sure they know they are welcome, and offering long-standing members who might begin to show symptoms the appropriate support to maintain their independence while having everything they need to feel included.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We are a voluntary organisation with limited means or professional training.
We will ensure that all of our signage in the clubhouse is dementia friendly.
Staff and volunteers will become dementia friends.
We are now more aware of the issues that people affected by dementia might face at the venue, so we will be proactive in ensuring that we support them and make it as easy as possible for them to join in activities.
