Hampshire Dementia Action Alliance

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 offer a venue for support group activity (in particular sport reminiscence using our own memorabilia), dementia awareness raising and publicity events. We can also explore ways in which to enable those with a diagnosis of dementia to continue enjoying cricket.

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

We use contract staff for some of our events so we will need to explore ways in which to ensure that we are able to provide awareness training as part of the induction for these staff.

Our venue is a very unique environment, so we will need to ensure we understand the challenges it would present to someone living with dementia.

2. Actions

  • Dementia Awareness raising for staff

    Ensure all staff attend a dementia awareness raising session.

    Being implemented
  • Environmental awareness

    Review areas where people living with dementia may visit to gain an understanding

    of the issues they may face. Make changes where feasible, make staff aware of potential problems

    where changes are not possible.

  • Dementia Friends Champions within organsiation

    Friends Champions within staff will allow Friends training sessions to be rolled out throughout the organisation.

  • Hosting of support groups for people living with dementia.

    There is an opportunity for groups to use our facilities for support groups. We could add value to a sports reminiscence group via use of our Cricket historian and our collection of  cricket memorabilia. We could also explore the option of hosting cricket games for people living with dementia.

    Being implemented
  • Awareness Raising

    We can help raising awareness by hosting events, by publicity during Dementia Awareness week etc. We can also provide a venue for Dementia Friends Sessions.

    Being implemented
