Burton Pidsea Memorial Hall

We are a village memorial hall in the beginnings of a total refurbishment. Our hall is used by lots of the community already but we wish to make it more open to everyone.

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. We will join the Local Dementia Action Alliance.

2. We will sign up to the National Dementia Declaration

3. We will produce an action plan outlining what we hope to achieve and how we will implement it. For this plan we would need to have 3 main aims. It is suggested that these aims might be:

A. Appoint a committee member to oversee the plan and to gain extra knowledge to pass on to other members.

B. Work towards the building signage and decorations being dementia friendly.

C. To hold a dementia awareness meeting/meetings to reach out into the wider community, with invitations sent to the committee, all our users, representatives from the Church, the Shop, the School, The Cafe and the Pubic houses.

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

A. Are there courses for none medical people? Can we gain enough knowledge so that the actual building is dementia friendly . 

B The need to check the small details at each stage of a long and complicated building schedule. Will we be able to buy ready made signage which is suitable?

C Can we make meetings both informative and the kind of meeting people want to come to? 

2. Actions

  • Appoint a committee member to oversee our action plan and to gain extra knowledge to pass on to other members

    The committee appointed Mrs. Carol Taylor as committee member with overview of the Hall’s plan.

    Status:
    Being implemented
