Rathmore House is a quality care home with specialist care for people living with dementia. Situated in a quiet residential street in the Swiss Cottage district of Camden, Rathmore House is an ivy-covered, Grade II listed Edwardian building with an attractive landscaped front and back garden. A renovation in early 2014 transformed the interior of the home, which now boasts contemporary furnishings, stylish print wallpaper and state-of-the-art facilities. Rathmore House offers its residents an inspirational life, filled with meaningful activities and supported by care staff committed to C&C's Principles of Care, which promise respect, independence and dignity.

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?
Rathmore House aims to share the good practice that we have developed in caring for our residents, nearly all of whom have some form of dementia, and to learn from others, through the Alliance.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
A challenge may be to reach the number of people we would like to, including members of the local community, to attend our events, but we will do all we can to promote them widely.
We will host a Garden Party during the summer of 2017, at which we will offer a stall for the DAA to promote its activities.
We will promote the DAA and information about resources for people with dementia and their carers throughout C&C’s premises, including sheltered accommodation.
We will hold an open day during 2017 for other care providers, people with dementia and their carers, as well as the local community, to raise awareness of the issues facing people with dementia and their carers and how Rathmore House provides a dementia-friendly environment for residents.
