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?
Hadleigh Town Council undertakes to support the work of the local Dementia Action Alliance and all other local organisations in order to support people with dementia, their carers and families. The Town Council will work with the police and Residential Homes to ensure, if those with Alzheimers are lost, there is a process to return them safeley to the care of the Residential Home, family or carers.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Ensuring all Councillors are aware of the Action Plan.
Arrange for Members of the Council to attend Dementia Friends or similar awareness sessions to increase their knowledge and understanding of dementia.
Work with appropriate agencies to provide a support system to return people with dementia to their Residential Home, family or carers.
