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?
To provide opportunities for people affected by dementia to maintain fitness and wellbeing both by improvd fitness and social contact and also by improved self confidence
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
The fitness classes are generic and so may pose some difficulties for people whose mobility or communication sills are compromised
Dementia Awareness raising for staff
Ensure all staff, attend a dementia awareness raising session
Dementia Friendly fitness sessions
Provide opportunites for people affected by dementia to maintain their fitness within fun aerobic sessions including salsafit, circuit training etc
Makeup Demonstrations for carers
Provide fun sessions where male carers can learn how to help with make up. Additionally I could provide fun make up demonstrations as part of activity sessions in care homes.
