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 recognise that the work that we do puts us in contact with dementia carers, those living with dementia and those working in the field of dementia awareness. We have an important role that can influence and change public perception of dementia and those affected or impacted by it, and several of our clients are actively involved in delivering care to people living with dementia, as such we are actively involved in supporting the work of these clients and know that by being a Dementia Friendly business we will be better positioned to understand our responsibilities and role in supporting these clients with our services and ensuring that we, as a company, understand how to help people affected by dementia.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We do not routinely have direct contact with those affected by dementia, but recognise that a number of our clients or associates may be affected by it. We wish to ensure that as a company, we are poised to deliver appropriate services to people living with dementia, regardless of the likelihood of us encountering someone living with dementia. We wish to further out own understanding of dementia, how it affects people, how it can affect the family, friends and carers of those living with dementia and how we can ensure that we can continue to facilitate the work of any clients we have who are involved with dementia or are affected by dementia.
Communication and promotion of dementia awareness
We are responsible for delivering the public-facing newsletter for the Emsworth Business Association. We also deliver marketing and PR services for a local elderly care group. We will use these opportunities to promote of Emsworth's bid to become a Dementia Friendly High Street, and raise awareness of the work that Dementia Friendly Hampshire are carrying out and how dementia can impact our community.
Ensure all staff attend a dementia friendly training session
Our interns will all undergo a dementia friendly training session.
