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?

At Eden House we recognise the challenges in living with a dementia, especially for the individual and for their family. At Eden House we recognise that the greatest resource to support the challenges of living with a dementia is our staff. We actively recruit these staff based upon values; this enables a culture that promotes personal choice and control/influence over those decisions that affect the individual.

Our dementia champions help design a service around the individual and their needs, a service that promotes life and meaningful occupation.

At Eden House we work closely with leading dementia organisations & individuals, for example Dementia Care Matters, Alzheimer’s Society, Bradford University, to develop our staff group, through this ongoing development we are able to provide an enabling and supportive environment where people feel valued and understood. We are able to nurture a culture that promotes knowledge about dementia, and which also facilitates discussion and ownership of individual needs.

Everyone at Eden House is a valued part of a family, are actively encouraged to be part of the community and to exercise the right to civic life.

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

The challenges we face in delivering the outcomes are almost singularily around our ability to recruit a staff group with the right value set. Staff who intrinsically can connect with those who live with a dementia.
