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 are developing a new project aimed at supporting families looking after people with dementia to allow them to remain in their homes longer.

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

Getting organisations to work with us, making contact with those in need of additional support.

2. Actions

  • Train one or more members of staff as Dementia champions.

    The staff members can then do the ongoing training for the teams in all areas that RCS work in.

  • Open a Dementia Coffee pot in Basingstoke, Andover and Romsey.

    The coffee pot will support carers by providing a drop in session where for an hourly fee they can leave their loved ones whilst they have some time for themselves. The sessions will run from 9.30 – 12.30 and 1pm – 3pm with lunch from 12.30 – 1pm.
