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?

Home Instead Senior Care Brentwood is part of an International world renowned company, which provides quality home care to clients.  Exceptional standards of home care services are achieved by training Caregivers and clients families in dementia care. 

By designing bespoke, affordable care options we enable families to look after loved ones suffering with dementia.  The main aim of our service is that a person living with dementia can remain in the comfort of their own home, with their treasured memories in familiar surroundings, continuing enjoying their life as part of a family and a local community.

Home Instead achieve this by training our Caregivers in effective techniques to manage the many different and sometimes challenging behaviours associated with dementia.

This is provided by a City & Guilds accredited training programme for Caregivers which teaches them to respect, honour and treat the person with dementia as an individual.

By providing continuity of care to families and clients, strong relationships develop with our Caregivers, which help in creating an environment in which people with dementia feel safe and can remain independent.

Friends and family training modules are available to help people and groups in our local area to help people with dementia.

 

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

Our key challenge is to make people aware that good Home care is an affordable and available alternative for people living with dementia. We must ensure people and families struggling with dementia are offered a range of support, giving them choices in finding a quality service which meets their needs.

Provid support to people with dementia so they may access personal budgets and local funding.
