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?

Staff members receive regular training that is dementia specific.

Assisted outings are arranged and since MacPenny's Gardens are situated next to Woodside Lodge , carers and family members are able to take residents there easily - the gardens there can be viewed in all their full splendour throughout the year.

Activities are organised through the week in the main lounge, along with visiting entertainment most Thursdays and Tea Dances are always a favourite.

Residents can access all the little things they could when at home - Newspapers, confectionary and magazines, along with a visiting hairdresser. Some prefer to invite their own hairdresser in. A chiropodist, reflexologist and library are also available.

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

 

Staffing issues and staff availability for training
