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 are committed to helping people understand the profound implications of Dementia on those that live with it, and those that live with them. We intend on making existing resources more available, and hope to work with local partners on developing further material.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
As a communications agency responsible for "Barabara's Story" we are keen to reach beyond the clinical workforce. Dementia doesn't solely exist when it presents itself in hospital. It affects people in their homes and in their daily lives and we need to ensure that everyone involved in those daily lives is aware of the impact on a person living with dementia.
To signpost "Barbara's Story" and other resources for Dementia Awarness
Many people's understanding of Dementia and similar conditions is limited, and in many cases is based upon limited resources being made availlable.Our pledge is to make information resources available wherever possible, and signpost where applicable.
- Being implemented
To showcase examples of best practice in Dementia Friendly Communities
Our aim, is that everyone has a knowledge of dementia that enables them to understand it's impact on the person living with it - and that communities and organisations in the community are pivotal to helping people live better with dementia.We will champion those organisations in the community that are leading the way in adappting dementia friendly services through support, and offering a platform to share their experiences.
