1. Action Plan

1. How do you play your part in delivery of the declaration? What could you do to ensure people with dementia and/or their carers receive the best possible service/help?

  • We provide goods and services to people with dementia that support them in their daily living and enable them to stay at home and in their community, enjoying the best quality of life for longer
  • Improving staff awareness and understanding of dementia, thereby having a good customer service ethos and training for our staff. For example if a person with dementia develops behaviour that challenges others, our staff will take time to understand why they are acting in this way and help them try to avoid it.
  • By enabling people living with dementia to be part of the community and continue to do daily and social activities.
  • Have a willingness to respond to the individual’s needs and help/support them when we can and it is reasonable for us to do so.
  • To act in a professionally empathetic way when dealing with those affected by dementia

  • Lack of knowledge amongst our staff/community




2. Actions

  • Training and Awareness

    We will roll out a training programme to Police Officers & Police Community Support Officers who have little or no understanding of this issue.
