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?
Identification of a Dementia Champion for our surgery
Staff training in dementia, and promotion of early identification and assessment of dementia
To work in partnership with the family, friends and carers of dementia sufferers. To increase awareness of national and local services avaialble to our practice population
Person centred Dementia care plans
Improvement in surgery environment with new improved signage
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Improved awareness of the needs for people and their carers with dementia and how we might better improve our services for them. Training is neded but is being organised and we hope to collaborate with local surgeries to facilitate this.
Time and workload commitments are always a challenge but are not insurmountable and if we can improve the lives of and services available to people with dementia and their carers, then this should provide better outcomes overall.
