Have a willingness to respond to the individual’s needs and help/support them when we can and it is reasonable for us to do so.
Provide a safe and welcoming environment coupled with first hand knowledge of dementia sufferer.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Lack of knowledge amongst our staff/community
Reviewing our practices/policies which may affect a person with dementia
