I run a sheltered housing scheme for the elderly owned by Trent and Dove Housing. Approx 30 people attended our Dementia Friends day on 4/11/16 hosted by Charlene. As part of this i was invited to join the scheme to the Dementia Alliance group.The scheme caters for people over 55 who want to live independently but in a secure building , that is attached to 24 hour emergency call out team. We hold many regular activities attend by residents and members of the community.We do have a lady that suffers with Alzheimer living here who is very much loved by the others and looked after by a care team. The event was held to make others aware that sometimes she needs help and guidance.

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 part of a large social housing group our sheletered schemes provide a safe enviroemnt for the elderly and at present Elziabth Court has one lady with Alzheimers and two elderly residents who suffers from some memory loss. As part of the schemes commitment to our good neighbour promise we took part in the countrywide events of being Dementia Friends as many know someone who has or is affected by Dementia . It was very inofrmative and everyone is more patient with people that have Dementia that live and visit our scheme.

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

The challenges that may present at the scheme is that not everyone is interested in others thats why we are implementsing a good neighbour scheme here.
