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?

Publicity through our local newspaper the Hexam Courant.

Working with the local health centre.

Working in the community with local businesses, care homes, schools, Parish Council and all local organisations (ie. Womens Insititute, and Corbridge Lions).

Involving National Organisations such as Age UK.

Running a memory cafe, assisted walking group and soon to open an activity centre.

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

Manpower - I am runnig all the projects myself with some asistance from volunteers. I will need to form a working group in the future to enable me to delegate out some of the work.

2. Actions

  • To recruit more Dementia Friends Champions

    I will be looking to form a working group who will hopefully all be Champions which will enable awareness to be raised throughout the community.

  • Care in the Community

    Show that Corbridge is leading the way in dementia awareness to the general public through holding dementia friendly sessions such as the cafe and assisted walking group.

  • Understanding

    Make sure the general public are aware of everything we are doing within Corbridge to include and support those living with dementia and their carers. This will be done through using the local media for exposure as well as spreading awareness through Dementia Friends sessions.
