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?

Within the limitations of the business we will offer a one to one service, with resources pack on offer.

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

In the future we will do our best to accommodate the needs of those individuals

2. Actions

  • Dementia Awareness raising for staff

    Ensure all staff attend a dementia awareness raising session

  • Review environment of premises

    To identify possible issues for people living with dementia. Make changes which are feasible and ensure staff awareness of those which are not so they are able to help visitors within the premises.

  • Awareness of specific issues someone living with dementia may have

    In particular look at such issues as the confusion mirrors may produce. Also consider the noise within the salon.

    Being implemented
  • Offer ‘quiet sessions’ within the salon

    Have some specific Dementia Friendly (DF) sessions for people with dementia which are quieter, no music, less chatter, 

    Being implemented
  • Awareness of the Carer’s feelings

    A husband/partner may feel very self conscious, they may not have been in a salon before, perhaps a DF session would be less intimidating
