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?

Hanover aims to be influential, innovative and to promote positive attitudes towards older people.  We are currently working with the Design Council on a project called Dementia Connect to help us towards becoming a ‘dementia friendly’ organisation.

One of the aims of our project is to find ways to capture and share good practice.  Other areas we will be looking at include communication, training, how we support staff, contractors’ awareness, local support links, activities and more.

Our ultimate goal is to get the position where we can state; “The way we work, the connections we make and the services we provide enable residents with dementia to live well at Hanover”.  

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

The biggest constraint for us is time, ie devoting sufficient time to residents with dementia and their carers .
