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?
Action 1 - Patience
Have patience with each person who display signs of dementia - this can be a distressing time and we want to make everyone feel comfortable and at ease.
Action 2 - Understanding
With good understanding of how dementia can affect the individual and whole family
Action 3 - Time
Taking time to listen and those who are suffering from dementia but colleagues who may be caring for a loved one who has this illness
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Good understanding, what to do if someone approaches us has dementia how we handle the situation and not to distress the person concerned.
