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 would like to ensure the office environment and service we provide is welcoming to individuals and their families living with dementia. We can support the work of other organisations by promoting their services in our office. We will not be looking to deliver any projects. Our main role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia will be an understanding & respectful role and a signposting role.

 

 

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

Not knowing if someone has dementia when we talk to them.

 Staff understanding of dementia and its symptoms.

Understanding how to make the office environment welcoming and friendly.

Knowing who to signpost to (if someone requires further information)
