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 dementia awareness among staff members to equip them to provide extra support for service users affected by dementia, and make some changes in order to have a more dementia-friendly building to include people with dementia in all activities.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
At the moment we have very few service users with dementia, and a lot of part-time and temporary staff; but we are nonetheless committed to providing an inclusive service for volunteers and members of the public affected by dementia.
We will improve signage at the centre, ensuring that people with dementia can find the building and find their way around the building more easily.
We will make staff dementia friends, and be more aware of service users with dementia in order to cascade information to temporary staff as appropriate.
We will read through the Dementia-Friendly Sport and Physical Activity Guide to see whether there are any more helpful tips in there.
