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?
As an organisation we are regularly working in people’s homes. Becoming more dementia friendly will help our employees to be more understanding and appreciative of the difficulties encountered by people living with dementia.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Ensuring dementia remains on our company agenda
Morrision Mears Rotherham will gain more knowledge about dementia cascading this knowledge within the management team and then though out the team of front line staff .
This will give our work force of 180 a greater awareness of the condition.
