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 can support our customers and staff to be more aware of dementia through our training modules
We can also become involved in fundraising and by attending and supporting local charity events.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We are at a basic level making our pharmacies physically more dementia friendly is a challenge but having our staff aware and trained will help. Sharing best practice and learning what other groups and organisation do can only help us with our mission and as a company double the staff members that are dementia friends and establish a network of dementia champion.
To encourage all of our staff to undertake the dementia awareness training and become dementia friends
We have built into or internal training system the training videos availiable though dementia friends as a company we have a target figure for the number of employees we hope to reach with this valuable resourse .
We also aim to have at least on Dementia champion per area by the end of the year
