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?

On a local scale to our residents and their carers to raise awareness to Worthing Homes’ staff of what signs to look for.  Arrange training for staff so that they have more awareness of dementia and where to sign-post residents to for help and support.  Advertise your leaflets/flyers on our website and face book pages.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Raising awareness to colleagues and colleagues understanding of dementia.
