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?
Netley Court is dedicated to providing specialist residential and dementia care for all residents. We help our residents lead a purposeful and stimulating day each and every day. We welcome the opportunity to speak to other local groups and organisations about the importance of each interaction they have with someone living with dementia and how it can help make a difference to their day.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Whilst our residents benefit from the training our Company provides our staff, we want to help reach all local organisations and achieve a uniformed approach to dementia throughout Netley.
