Hampshire Dementia Action Alliance

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?

We provide two minibuses that are used for shopping trips and outings, also for getting people to meetings and services. We also have a lounge and rooms we let to organisations etc

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

The centre is a very busy and noisy environment.

Volunteers staff the centre which makes training difficult. 

2. Actions

  • Dementia Awareness raising for staff

     Ensure all customer facing staff are dementia aware

    Being implemented
  • Environment

     Noisy, busy place so train volunteers to look out for any expression of anxiety and discomfort in a person possibly living with dementia so as to be able to support and encourage to move to a quieter place

    Being implemented
  • Communication

     To develop good understanding of possible behaviours which may indicate individual(s) may be living with dementia so as to support them sensitively
