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 are committed to providing appropriate Moving and Handling training and helping care givers easier ways to provide safe transfers and understanding of how the condition affects both clients and carers in any given situation.
We promote Dementia Awareness both within our organisation and giving small presentations to anyone who may want to find out more.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Challenges can include finding a venue to present and encouraging care givers that there is a way to work with people with Dementia.
Promoting Best Practice amongst Care givers to people with Dementias
By engaging both formal and informal care givers to attend specific Moving and Handling courses which will give an opportunity to step back and look at the role they perform. To step into the world of someone with Dementia and appreciate how having interventions performed can look from the person with the conditions point of view. To engage in practical aspects of Moving and Handling and learning hints and tips to make it easier to move someone with a complex condition.
