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 are a well-known fashion retailer at Meadow hall this gets shoppers from all over south Yorkshire and beyond
We understand that two thirds of people with Dementia live in the community and that the numbers are increasing.
It is important for people to as feel safe and able to continue to visit all the places they did before their diagnosis particularly in the early stages.
We can help this happen by being understanding and learning more about the difficulties a person with dementia might experience.
We can also tell people about support services within Meadow Hall and they may be able to sign post to services in the local area
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Families may be embarrassed by the situation and other customers may not be as understanding.
Sometimes if it is busy it may be difficult to find time to engage with someone needing more time and care
