1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists a number of outcomes that we 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?

In our day-to-day contact with individuals and groups, we are sensitive to needs and circumstances and tailor our responses accordingly:  facilitating rather than challenging; allowing time for people to process information; communicating simply and openly.

We provide direct help, advice and grants, to all sorts of volunteer-led groups, including those working in the dementia field.

We support, pro bono, the Dementia Action Alliance in Lincolnshire.

We actively encourage a common-sense, jargon-free approach in all our forms and communications.

We will publicise dementia-related topics and the Alliance in our newsletter and through our local and national networks. 

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

The challenge is to make our client group more aware of the dementia landscape and people’s and organisation’s responses.

As a grant maker and services developer we are in a strong position to influence opinion.

  • Research gaps in service provision in Lincolnshire

    Status:
    Initial Scoping

    2013 - Fourth Quarter Update

    In progress

    2013 - Third Quarter Update

    In progress

    2013 - Second Quarter Update

    We are looking at community and static care and support in partnership with 3rd sector support services, care homes, housing associations and statutory agencies.

    Our aim is to further define needs, identify solutions, map provision - then find the money and providers to plug the gaps.

    The key is to construct a needs-based strategy that multi-sector agencies buy in to.  This forms the basis of approaches to funders and commissioners.

    We depend on the expertise and commitment of Dementia Action Alliance partners in Lincoln and South Lincolnshire. 

  • Continue to support and develop the local alliance
