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?

Working with the public means we have a role to play in enabling people with dementia to live in a supportive environment where they feel valued and understood and have a sense of belonging and of being a valued part of everyday life.

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

  • Time  due to business commitments
  • Lack of knowledge amongst staff of dementia and how to support those with it.
  • General lack of understanding of the signs and symptoms of the condition and how people could be affected
  • Assumptions and stereotypes that people with dementia do not use our services, not recognising that there are different stages to the condition
  • Reaching people living with dementia so that they are aware we are here and are members of the Alliance and working towards being a dementia friendly community.
  • Encouraging other small businesses to welcome this initiative positively.
