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?

  • By providing quality homecare services which enables people with Dementia to stay in their own homes and to live as independently as possible within the community.
  • By ensuring all our staff (office and front line care workers) are trained in Dementia awareness and the person-centred approach.
  • By expressing an expectation that our care workers will treat all those we care for with respect, dignity and understanding.

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

  • As a new organisation, our time and resources are stretched.
  • Lack of knowledge amongst our staff
