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?

Bertha James Day Centre has over a forty year history of helping thousands of local elderly people across Bromley.  We support elderly, often vulnerable adults, helping them to socialise in a safe friendly environment whilst providing often-needed care and assistance - be it help with bathing to getting a prescription right.

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

Due to current changes our client group will have more dependancy on the services to support them in their enviroment.  In the Borough of Bromley, there are more clients with dementia, therefore we will need to adapt to the various changes.
