Becoming actively involved in the local Community initiative as appropriate.

Managing the time spent becoming involved against the needs of the business.
Dementia Awareness raising for staff
Ensure all staff attend a dementia awareness raising session

Review and understand the problems someone with dementia may have within our premises. Change anything which is practical, be aware of features which are not feasible to change so staff can support someone having problems.

Understanding of issues someone with dementia may face when moving home
Knowing about some of the special problems someone with dementia and their carer may face: choosing a new home (for flats in older people’s developments are there any problems with the lease), deciding what furniture/possessions to take, which to discard and why. (cookers – buy new, take old, retain items which would be meaningful later)
