1. Action Plan

How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers? 

Supporting people with dementia who want to stay independent with their shopping needs. Letting them know that there is support within the store should they need it. 

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

Due to shift work making sure we have enough colleagues trained that there will always be someone available to support someone with Dementia should they need it. Also being able to recognise the signs.

2. Actions

  • Dementia Awareness raising for staff

    Ensure staff attend a dementia awareness raising session

    Completed
  • Improve the skills of the dementia care workforce

    Develop and deliver high quality education programmes to staff across a range of dementia care settings and through the use of our approved trainer scheme.

    We will be looking to send 2 Training colleagues onto the course. We will then bring the information back to the store and as time allows will gradually train information out to colleagues.

    Our aim to make the store somewhere that people living dementia will feel safe.
