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 anticipating around 40,000 visitors to visit Rainham Hall annually.  Many of these visitors will be people with dementia and/or their carers.  We would like to ensure that our visitors with dementia feel as welcome and comfortable as possible when they come to Rainham Hall.

 Our volunteers are very active in the community.  Many of them are community ambassadors and volunteer for more than one organisation.  We would hope that our training of our volunteers would benefit the local community and other local organisations too.

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

Some of our colleagues may not see the benefit in the training until they have received it.  This may mean we have to work a lot harder to get their buy in when initially running training.
