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?

Our role in making a difference in our community:

  • Improve diagnosis and ensuring patients are suitably identified.
  • Ensuring that all Henry Moore Clinic staff have a basic level of awareness of dementia. 
  • Ensure all Henry Moore Clinic staff complete Vulnerable Adults training.
  • Recognising that each person has a unique experience of dementia and listening, providing choices to the person with dementia and their family.
  • Exploring how we can make Henry Moore Clinic more dementia-friendly.
  • Making Henry Moore Clinic a place where people know that they can seek help if they are lost, confused or threatened.
  • Provide information to families\carers.
  • Advise patients and carers of relevant local events.
  • Joining and participating in our local Dementia Action Alliance.

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

  • Improving diagnosis and ensuring that patients are suitably identified. 
  • Releasing staff for appropriate awareness sessions\training.
  • The building’s age and layout provide some specific challenges to makimg the practice building more dementia-friendly.
  • Funding the changes to make the Henry Moore Clinic more dementia-friendly.

2. Actions

  • Awareness and Understanding

    90% of our nursing and admin staff have taken part in a Dementia Friends session.  This has helped us to have a wider understanding of the condition and the impact it has on the individual, their carer’s and the wider community.
