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?

A friendly welcoming environment.  We take time to speak to all our customers individually and never make them feel rushed or ostracised if they are displaying anxietie.

Our vintage setting helps to evoke memories which lead todiscussions between carers/clients and staff. Our open plan seating ensures that everyone is included in conversations if they wish.

We display leaflets about dementia awareness along with other events happening in the community.    

 

 

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

Ensuring that all staff are trained and aware of needs of all individuals
