Salfordian Hotel

We are a 38 bed hotel in Southport that offers affordable holidays for the elderly people of Salford. The hotel is a charitable organisation and is run by Salford trust. We do not provide care facilities, but we do provide a warm and friendly atmosphere, and have a programme of training to support our staff to be dementia aware.

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 regularly accommodate people with dementia and their carers, also respite for carers.

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

The challenge we face is modifying the hotel to be a more suitable environment for people living with dementia.  The funding is the major hold up for us achieving this goal as we rely heavily on donations.   

2. Actions

  • Staff training

    We have already trained some of our staff to be aware of the issues facing people who are living with dementia, and plan further training sessions in the future.

    So far, eight staff have received some basic training, and we are planning for further training in April 2016.

  • Ensuring our environment is as dementia friendly as possible

    In order to make the interior of the hotel as dementia friendly as possible, we are planning to replace the patterned carpets in the bedrooms, and redecorate rooms with plain wallpaper. Our redecoration programme is ongoing, but this depends entirely on funds being donated to the hotel.

  • Clearer signage

    In order to make it as easy as possible for people living with dementia to find their way safely around the hotel, we plan to put up clearer signage; taking account of advice from people living with dementia and their carers.  We aim to have this completed by the end of 2016.
