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 understand the importance of our dental practice becoming dementia friendly and we are fully behind Bishop Auckland in their quest to make the community dementia friendly.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
The challenge we will face will be in terms of making any big changes to the environment due to financial implications.
We have ensured that all of our employees have attended a Dementia Friends information session in order to heighten their awareness and understanding so that they are better equipped to deal with any patients displaying signs of dementia.
Coin Recognition Charts
We have place coin recognition charts at all payment points to act as a visual aid for anyone that has difficulties with recognising money.
Dementia Information and Signposting
We have literature about dementia in our waiting rooms for patients to read which will in turn raise awareness and hopefully get people talking about it. This will also hopefully help to reduce stigma which is one of the Co Durham DAA's aims.
