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 organisation is a fully flexible service, that focuses upon an individuals needs. Ranging from a short weekly visit to round-the-clock attendance; we working in partnership with our clients, their carers and supporting health and social agencies, offer a person-centred service that encourages independence and self-respect.

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

The challenge in delivering these outcomes is reduced significantly through our training of Dementia Awareness and ensuring that this area that so many are affected by is holistic and takes the client and their carer to the forefront of practice. There is often not enough organisations that sign up to deliver or be part of such an alliance and more awareness needs to be delivered allowing the client to feel supported and safe.
