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?

At the national and international level, Re:Cognition Health takes an active role in the fight against Alzheimer’s Disease. They provide access to international clinical trials that provide hope through early access to disease- modifying Alzheimer’s treatments. This allows patients to access outstanding medical care at no cost, including comprehensive health screens, MRI scans and PET scans.

 All employees have a comprehensive understanding of dementia and conduct themselves in a professional and compassionate way. We want the best for our patients and make sure that we are aware of other events or support groups that may help our patients.

 This means that Re: Cognition Health is fostering an environment of support, accurate diagnosis, services designed for those living with Alzheimer’s disease and allowing those who wish to actively participate in research with the aim to deliver a better life now and hope for the future.

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

Early diagnosis is imperative, but sometimes because of the lack of understanding in the general population of what dementia is and what key warning signs there are of mild cognitive impairment, the diagnosis can come too late to enrol on a trial.

Dementia does occur in the brain so a casual observer may not recognize that someone may be living with dementia. So, education within the younger generations may help.

2. Actions

  • Creating dementia friendly signs.

    Creating signs for those with dementia to know where the toilet is and to navigate themselves around our clinic. We also want to highlight the parking spaces where they need to park, using flowers. This will allow for less confusion around the building and create an environment of independence.

  • Creating an information corner in the clinic.

    The aim of this action is to ensure that those who do come into the clinic, leave with the information they need. Either the person living with dementia or their caregivers. We will aim to gather information and resources to give to patients and for those to explore while they visit with us. Ensuring that information is correct and up to date.

  • Ensure waiting room has dementia friendly activities.

    Whilst patients are in the clinic, we can ensure there are activities while they are waiting such as sudokus, crosswords, radio available, newspapers and tea and coffee station. All with the correct signage and safe to use to foster an environment of independence for our patients. Also allowing them the opportunity to leave feedback on the services provided and what we can do to improve.
