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?

A third of our care home is dedidacted to residential/nursing dementia and we have fully dementia trained nursing staff on this floor. We have activities that are geared for these residents in the home and take them on trips utilising our mini bus that we share with our sister home. I am in addition a Dementia Friend Champion and offer talks on dementia and becoming a Dementia Friend in our Cinema. We also provide booklets on how to live with dementia and books on how to understand someone living with dementia and 'eating as we age'. 

I offer our facilities out such as Cafe area/Cinema for meetings and talks for groups/communities wanting to understand and know more and inform others.

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

There are different levels of dementia and from my perspective we have to consider all residents not just one that come into the home. So if we take a dementia resident we have to ensure they will fit with the dementia community. This can be challenging as dementia is progressive and someone living with dementia maybe at a different stage to another.
