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 provide care to people in their own homes including those with Dementia thus promoting independent living and supporting carers in the process. Our staff are trained to level 2 (QCF) in dementia awareness.

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

General awareness of Dementia and its effects on the individual and their families. The public believe that if you have Dementia you must go into a residential /nursing home which is clearly not necessary.

2. Actions

  • Dementia Awareness raising for staff

    Ensure all staff, especially customer-facing staff, attend a dementia awareness raising session
