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?
To ensure that anyone visiting Holton Lee with dementia has a positive experience. We will link with our local Dorset Dementia Action Alliance
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
How would you want to review the effectiveness of these actions?
We will regularly review these actions and provide training for staff.
Engage people with dementia in our Flourish Project, enabling them to participate in Green Care and benefit from the therapeutic benefits of horticulture and nature, along with physical activity and opportunities to socialise, in a safe environment.
