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 staff at Rose Lodge Care Home will ensure that our residents are respected as an individual and that they will be supported to make their own decisions maximising their independance to live well with dementia treating our residents with respect and dignity.
We are proactive in creating a dementia friendly enviroment and pride ourselves on staff training to enable us to provide good quality care.
We will engage with our community to ensure our residents do not become isolated and they can continue with activities within the community.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
The challenges that we are faced with at Rose Lodge in delivering our outcome will be maintaining quality of care on an individual basis for each resident, we will achieve this by attaining each residents personal history and deliver personalised care and support for the residents and their family. Our care plans need to be reflective of individual needs and the best ways of achieving the optimum care. Residents need meaningful activities and stimulation.
