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?

Central and Cecil aim to provide high quality housing, care and support to people with Dementia.  People with dementia who access our services are at the heart of all we do. Whatever decision we take and how we offer support will be influenced by them. We need to ensure we understand individual needs, opinions and priorities for all that we do. We will work as partners with residents in the development and delivery of our services.

 We aim to deliver personalised services for residents and establish a reputation for excellence supporting people with Dementia.  Central and Cecil aim to recruit people that do the very best job possible for the benefit of residents with dementia, encouraging specific values namely - Integrity - being honest, accountable and proud of everything we do, Respect - appreciating and valuing uniqueness of individuals with dementia, and Partnership - uniting our efforts and potential. 

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

Central and Cecil have consistently pushed to deliver the highest standards of care and support for individuals with Dementia. We also strive to encourage residents direct involvement and choice  in the delivery of that care.

Over the past couple of years it has been identified that people are choosing to stay at home longer and do not enter care services until older and often when Dementia has got to a point where consent, choice and involvement has been diminished or capacity has gone.

Central and Cecil will do its upmost to work with families and all other professionals make sure advanced care planning, individual decisions and consent to treatment has been taken into account before moving into one of our services.
