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?
Berkeley Home Health are committed to raising awareness of Dementia in the community and ensuring all of our carers are fully trained. We are joining all local alliances in Sussex and actively encourage all carers to become dementia friends and champions. We are looking forward to networking on a national level to assist with our development of a Dementia Business Strategy.
We continue to raise awareness of dementia and other chronic conditions on our social media platforms and website.
Berkeley Home Health continue to collaborate with other community organisations to ensure our clients and carers are able to access the best support and services available in the area
