We are a residential hme for the elderly. Our aim is to provide a comfortable and convenient home where everyday problems are shared and solved; to offer a lifestyle and atmosphere that is 'family-like', non-institutional and as stimulating and as peaceful as each situation allows and needs.

Local Alliances:
Sherborne & District Dementia Action Alliance

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?

Eastbury House wishes to encourage and focus local interest in the work of the Sherborne & District Dementia Alliance by promoting dementia awareness amongst local community groups, businesses and voluntary organisations.

We intend to ask people with dementia and their carers how awareness, accessibility and inclusion have been promoted and has it, in their opinion, made a difference.

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

The financial implications of training.  The challenge of overcoming people's preconceptions of dementia.
