Your Living Room CIC

We deliver a person centred approach to people living in hoarded or cluttered environments. We currently work throughout Essex. We work wih partner organisations such as the Safeguarding Board, NHS, Social Services, Mental Health, Police, Fire service, statutory and voluntary support agencies. All of our staff are either Dementia friends or Champions. Our service goes beyond the work required to de-clutter the home by also delivering after care and support for our clients so that they do not fall back into chaos. I am the current Chairman of the Pan essex dementia action alliance and can see the value in working in partnership with organisations where there is an identified crossover of service provision. A number of the clients we are currently engaged with are living with dementia, so some of our assistuve technology aids will help alleviate their frustrations, enabling them to live well in their own homes, engaging with relatives and friends whilst supporting their safety.

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?

As a Director of this company I am honoured to sit as the current Chairman of the Pan Essex Dementia Action Alliance. Our aim is to assist local alliances to share good practice to achieve the seven outcomes that the national DAA have identified. As a company we are completely engaged with the ethos of a person focused approach to vulnerable people supporting them to live good, safe, independant and dignified lives, whilst protecting their right to their own vision of a good life for themselves 

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

The challenges for us is to ensure all of our staff are Dementia Friends or Champions before they engage at any level with our clients. Also making sure that the products for assistive tehnology that we use are practical and user friendly for the person, family and friends and future pathways that we take as a company are made with dementia care in mind.
