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 are aiming to provide a dementia friendly customer service and environment to encourage people living with dementia to visit our premises and feel comfortable here. This will improve their confidence and well-being and help reduce the stigma which still exists around the condition.

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

Lack of understanding among our staff and current customers about the challenges experienced by people living with dementia (and their carers).

2. Actions

  • Improve staff awareness

    Encourage all customer facing staff to complete the on-line Dementia Friends registration and/or attend local Dementia Friends/Customer Awareness Sessions and provide access to the booklet ‘How to help people with dementia – a guide to customer facing staff’
