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?

Our business will contribute to the National Dementia Declaration Priority and ensure any products that we supply are tailored to client needs. We will work with service providers, carers and other related agencies to ensure we can identify the specific needs of those with dementia or those caring for them.

We will ensure that we undertake dementia awareness training and work with local alliances to ensure we support people with dementia to live their life to the fullest and assist them to build a sense of belonging and of being a valued part of their community.

We will ensure any of our publications or promotional material only uses words and descriptions of Dementia that are appropriate and acceptable to those with dementia.

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

Time and financial restraints to raise staff awareness.

In relation to when we are demonstrating products and assessing the end users needs and ability to safely operate a product, then engagement with those not currently diagnosed with dementia or where dementia symptoms may not be as readily obvious on any given day may see us failing to fully take account of specific needs relevant to dementia.

2. Actions

  • Increase our Dementia Awareness

    We will increase our dementia awareness by attending a face to face dementia friends session or by watching the online video. We will incorporate dementia awareness into our induction for any new staff who join.
