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 a local cafe and are part of the community we know our customers and many of their famillies .
I now know that two thirds of people with dementia live in the community and that numbers are increasing . It is important for people to feel safe and welcome in the commuinity and we can be part of that ,being understanding and learning more about the difficulites a person with dementia might be experiencing .
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We may find that famillies are embarrassed by the situation we can help reasure them that it is alright .
If it is busy we may find we haven't got as much time as we would like to have to engage with someone needing more time and care
Increase our knowledge about dementia and ensure all 4 staff sign up as Dementia Friends.
