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?

-Initial understanding of the needs of clients with dementia

-Using this knowledge, deliver dementia awareness to all staff in order to ensure they meet the needs of the clients with dementia

-To be aware that staff may be supporting someone with dementia (in their personal life)

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

-Lack of current knowledge about dementia

-Limited time resources, however, dementia awareness can be provided by an external facilitator

-Limited resources if need to alow staff members time to support someone with dementia but flexibility would be possible

2. Actions

  • Improve staff awareness of issues facing people with dementia.

    Improving staff awareness will enable us to identify specific products and features to help those with dementia or if possible,to tailor make information such as laminated, simplified instructions or markers on controls.
