Dementia Friendly Southampton (Southampton DAA)

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?

I will raise my own awareness of dementia by becoming a Dementia Friend, enabling me to interact better with clients who are affected by dementia.

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

I need to learn more about dementia and how it affects people so that I can tailor my services accordingly.

2. Actions

  • I will become a Dementia Friend

    I will become a Dementia Friend to increase my awareness of dementia and how it can affect people. I will wear my badge so that others know I am a Dementia Friend.

  • I will encourage others to sign up to the Dementia Action Alliance

    I will encourage others to sign up to the Dementia Action Alliance and become a Dementia Friendly Business.

  • I will increase my knowledge of dementia through my own research

    I will do this by researching the condition on the Alzheimer’s Society website, by looking out for news about dementia and by talking with those affected by dementia.
