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?

Whenever training is delivered the language used is positive and negative terms are avoided to describe dementia e.g. dementia sufferer. Provide local and national services, and charities with better understanding of dementia and how it can affect a person's life and their carer, this can be done by giving free presentations. Training and consultancy sessions should always be inclusive with the carer being as important as the person with dementia. 

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

Dementia Dialogue is at present only run by one person who also delivers the services, therefore time and outgoings could be limited. 

2. Actions

  • Providing dementia awareness information

    Dementia Dialogue will endeavour to give two free dementia awareness and wellbeing presentations over the next 6 months. The free presentations will be offered to carers of people with dementia, people with dementia and general public preferably organised part of a non-for-profit charity or private group of people.

  • Be an active member of the local dementia support services meetings

    The commissioners have established a dementia support services group, which discusses how each service can work together and set targets to ensure best practice in dementia care both for people with dementia and their carers.  I will continue to be an active member of this group.
