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 provide education resources on advocacy and mental capacity and to raise awareness on the importance and power of inclusion
We aim to promote a right based approach, and providing tools to support assessment and co-production
We aim to provide free access to tools which helps people to take proactive steps to minimise the impact of the symptoms of dementia, as well as increase wellbeing
We aim to provide accessible information on a timely basis
We aim to provide tools to audit the physical environment and education on how the environment impacts on our wellbeing
We aim to provide tools that build on communities of support as well as educate on the dangers of loneliness
We aim to develop resources from an evidence base, that have useful application for individual, families, and communities living with dementia
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
The challenges in meeting these outcomes are:
Developing tools for the social care sector that work across a variety of roles, as well as work with a diverse range of dementia’s
Seeking, and securing funding to make our educational resources available to a wider audience
Fostering engagement, and commitment from stakeholders on a community level to utilise our resources to good effect
Working with cash-strapped social care system, that has systemic problems and fiscal challenges
To provide free access to the Home Spirit Tool
We need to source a pilot site for the Home Spirit Tool, which will be a portal for professionals and individuals living with Dementia
To make our learning resources more widely available
We are striving to secure funding to provide our learning materials to more groups, businesses and service providers
To offer our skills to consult in the local area
We feel very passionate about sharing our skills in the local community. Being part of the Aylesbury Town Alliance will be an excellent way to be involved in supporting people living and affected by Dementia.
