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?
Maltby town council recognises that that the number of people with dementia in on the increase and that there is a need to ensure the people in Maltby who live with the condition and their families feel supported and understood.
The council members understand the concept of the Rotherham Dementia Action Alliance(RDDAA) and its aim to create a Dementia Friendly Maltby as one of the Dementia Friendly communities within Rotherham.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
A challenge will be finding ways to get the relevant people engaged with the project and ensuring that we find ways of making it self-sustaining for years to come once the initial work has been done
Dementia Friendly Communities
We will support Rotherham Dementia Action Alliance in its aim to make Maltby Dementia Friendly encouraging organisations to get involved and promoting the concept of Dementia Friendly Maltby
Provision of Premises
We will provide the use of Edward Dunn Memorial Hall to run a number of Dementia Friends sessions to sign as many people in Maltby to be Dementia Friends as possible and to consider organisations becoming members of the Alliance and looking at ways of becoming dementia friendly. We will help promote these sessions
