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 recognise that persons living with dementia will wish to visit us to access legal services appropriate to them.

We are passionate about helping such people, their carers and families.

We will approach this issue through the actions we will now define, on a holistic and ongoing basis.

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

The organisation will need to provide the resources, particularly staff training and time, to address legal practice from this perspective.

2. Actions

  • Raise awareness for public facing staff

    We are investigating how best to provide staff training aimed at public facing and telephone answering staff.

    We are looking to provide dementia awareness sessions, with staff becoming dementia friends.

    We are sourcing copies of the booklet "How to help people with dementia: A guide for customer-facing staff" and other resource materials available from the Alzheimer's Society.


    Initial Scoping, Planning
  • Accessibility of service

    We will address the entire range of issues associated with delivery of our services, with the needs of persons with dementia, their carers and family in mind.

    We will approach this with the published guidance of the Alzheimers's Society - for example the Dementia Friendly Physical Environments Checklist -   in mind.

    Investigating, Planning
  • Awareness of specific services

    We will seek to raise awareness of services which may be of particular relevance to families, for example Lasting Powers of Attorney, their effects and advantages.
