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?

The Kenilworth Town Centre Partnership will work with town centre businesses to raise their awareness of the issues faced by people with dementia and their carers.

The Kenilworth Town Centre Partnership will encourage town centre businesses to become Dementia Friends and will encourage businesses to develop action plans to ensure their business or service is considerate of those affected by dementia.

The Kenilworth Town Centre Partnership will help with organising and facilitating training for businesses in the the town.

The Kenilworth Town Centre Partnership will promote and publicise businesses which are dementia friendly through their website listings to ensure those affected by dementia are aware of shops and services that are accommodating of their needs.

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

The Kenilworth Town Centre Partnership will need to engage with the local business community and convince them of the need and value of developing their awareness of dementia. Commercial pressures and time constraints may mean their are challenges in engaging with businesses.

The Kenilworth Town Centre Partnership would like to engage with a diverse range of shops and services to help ensure the town centre experience for those affected by dementia is as good as can be. Engaging a diverse range of businesses, from shops and services, to pubs and restaurants will be a challenge due to a limited resource in terms of personnel contacting the businesses.
