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?

We provide 24/7 monitored, discreet solutions for around the home and GPS digital devices for out and about.  We support people with dementia to live safely and confidently, providing important reassurance to their carers knowing that if help is needed, it is there for them 24 hours a day.

Our solutions enable people with dementia to enjoy the best quality of life for longer in the community that they are familiar with so that they can continue to do their daily and social activities with confidence.

Improving our staff awareness and understanding of dementia is important to us so that we can provide the best service possible. 

We are accredited with the Telecare Services Association (TSA) to a very high standard and so is our 24 hour monitoring partner, so we are a service you can trust.

Affordability is extremely important to us, so we work hard with our suppliers to keep our costs down and every saving we make, we will ensure that this is reflected in our charges.

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