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?

I will endeavour to embrace the 7 outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve by providing a Dementia friendly environment, information, support and appropriate training within the work place. I will aim to attend and keep up to date with local networks, meetings and research and share the knowledge attained where appropriate. Having recently been diagnosed with Dementia, my mum now needs extra care and support and I will provide this either personally or by sourcing outside help where necessary. I will then share what I have learnt with other individuals and groups which will go towards helping & supporting others who have Dementia and their carers.

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

Dementia is one of the greatest challenges facing our ageing society, although we must be reminded that Dementia is not restrictive to the elederly. On a daily basis we come into contact with people who have Dementia, within the work place (staff, business associates & customers) and the general public and it is very important that everyone recognises this and acts sympathetically. With adequate training and support our company will aim to give help & guidance to people with Dementia.
