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?
Busy Bee helps to meet delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers by proving an honest and reliable services that helps people with dementia to feel more involved and connected through companionship and a wide variety of services. We already have some dementia knowledge, but are would like to increase this further.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
As with most organisations, our biggest challenge is access to dementia resources through time and budget constraints.
Increase our Dementia Awareness
We have already attended a Dementia Friends information session and read books about dementia. However, we would like to further increase our dementia awareness by undertaking the Scie Open Dementia e-learning Programme and, subject to availability, attending the Alzheimer’s Society Carers Information and Support Programme (CrISP) course.
- Implementation, Planning
Spread ‘dementia awareness’ to others
We will encourage other businesses and services in the Market Weighton are to join the Dementia Action Alliance to become more dementia aware. For example, we think that Tesco in Market Weighton provide a good service to customers with dementia and we could arrange for a Dementia Friends information session to be held for Tesco staff.
We will follow the Dementia Action Alliance (DAA) on social media, and will attend networking DAA events where possible.
Signpost people with dementia and their carers to dementia services in the area
We will let our customers with dementia and their carers know about other services available to them, such as the Alzheimer’s Society memory cafés and CrISP carers courses.
