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 an organisation we strive to provide the very best care to all our Service Users , we appreciate the growing numbers of people living in the community with dementia and recognise the need and benefit to keep up to date with all that is currently available to assist our teams to provide quality dementia care.

By engaging with Rotherham Dementia Action Alliance and the Dementia Friends programme we will be able to affectively network and gain information and contacts to enhance our quality service   

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

We will need to embed our agreed actions into our organisation to ensure that our commitment to becoming a dementia friendly care provider is maintained ensuring all new team members are aware of our commitment and are appropriately training and have knowledge of RDAA and dementia friends.

The care profession has a growing number of employees and there for this will always be a challenge
