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 can play our part in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers through ensuring that we address the National Dementia Declaration ….
Number 6: I feel safe and supported in my home and in my community, which includes shops and pubs, sporting and cultural opportunities.
Neither I nor my family feel ashamed or discriminated against because I have dementia. People with whom we come into contact are helpful and supportive.
My carer and I continue to have the opportunity to develop new interests and new social networks.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
The lack of awareness regarding ‘Wellbeing’ the importance that nature and animals can play in enabling people with dementia to live well and ensure they feel treated equally and with great respect.
Time – Ensuring all the team have an understanding of Dementia
Encourage participation of people with dementia in accessing their community.
We will continue to encourage local groups or individuals to experience our Llamas, promoting wellbeing and being inclusive.
Ensure that we attend a dementia education session provided by Dementia Forward
