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?

We provide high quality home care to people with dementia living in Central London. All our support workers are given a Dementia Friends Information Session as part of their standard induction. They are all signed up as Dementia Friends and we also have our own eLearning on dementia to further strengthen their knowledge and understanding of people living with dementia. Our Managing Director, Bryan McMorrine, is a Dementia Friends Champion and he delivers Information Sessions to the public in Central London.

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

So far the only challenge has been finding the best ways to promote the local information sessions but the Dementia Friends posters seem to have the most impact. There were challenges on venues for public sessions but now have agreement to use rooms at Islington Town Hall and Pimlico Library.
