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?
The Park Club aims to provide opportunities for everyone to lead an active lifestyle, regardless of any barriers that they encounter. We want to be accessible for all participants to take part in exercise and improve their wellbeing. The Park Club staff will be trained to support people with dementia and provide them with the opportunity to improve their health. We will also ensure that our facility is equipped to work with people with dementia while making them feel welcomed and safe.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Our main challenge will be ensuring that our building design and facilities are dementia friendly, and we will be working with all staff on site to increase awareness and understanding to be able to support people with dementia. It is important that our club is as accessible as possible for all people to be able to improve their health & wellbeing.
