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 aim to deliver help for our customers who may be living with Dementia and their carers, we look to train our staff and assist the tenants in providing a Dementia friendly business.

Our staff are Dementia Friendly, we would like to be able to help in the wider community.We understand in order to develop our awareness our staff need to become confident in supporting people living with dementia, their family and carers.

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

Time and availability of the tenants staff. We hope to conbat this by holding regular training sessions for staff to attend.
