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?

Our carers will encourage, support and motivate our service users by ensuring they respect value and provide a range of options and opportunities and their right to choose. We will endeavour to provide our service users with relevant information to make their own informed choices. We will encourage and stimulate service users to stay involved within their community which will reflex their interests which they can participate and enjoy together. We will continue to ensure our organisation will keep ourselves informed of all new developments in research so we can support our carers with a greater knowledge and understanding of Dementia which will ensure our carers deliver the appropriate person centred care.

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

There are many types of dementia , each person is unique and will experience dementia in their own way. The different types of dementia tend to effect people differently, especially in the early stages. We will look at how others respond to the person, an how supportive or enabling the persons surroundings are, this greatly affects how well someone can live with dementia. Service Users with dementia may experience some of the following -day to day memory loss -concentrating, planning or organising -language -visual palatial skills -orientation Dementia is progressive, the person may develop behaviours that seem unusual or out of character.

2. Actions

  • Meeting the needs of the service user and providing personal choice.

    We will ensure we not only provide service users with carers that will meet all their individual needs and have all nessessary training and experience. We will also introduce care workers to the service user to enable the service user to maintain control of their care and in doing so providing continuity of care.

    We will guarentee our service users are provided with all details of signposting. Our organisation will promote this in order to provide service users with updated research, information and resources that will enable them to meet their required needs.

  • Encouraging independence and supporting choices made by service users

    We will use sign posting to aid our service users to gain knowledge and understanding about whats there for them should they want to use it, services ranging from local support groups to drop in services.

    Our carers will help their service users feel confident by working along side them when meeting people in a similar position while assiting them to have fun with a wide network of others.
