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?

  1. 1.    How can your organisation help to support people with dementia and families/carers?

By ensuring our staff team are appropriately trained.

By ensuring we involve the appropriate healthcare professionals.

By making communal areas within our services Dementia friendly.    

We can arrange activities to raise awareness during dementia awareness week and throughout the year.       

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

  1. 1.    What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes for your organisation?

Staff training and experience is limited. 

We have limited resources.   

  1. 1.    How can you overcome these challenges?

We have arranged for managers and seniors to attend a ‘Dementia Awareness – Supporting Adults with Learning Difficulties’. 

We have created a team of ‘Dignity champions’ within the company who can promote Dementia awareness.

We will continue to work alongside healthcare professionals to provide holistic support to our service users.
