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?

Nationally, we aim to spread awareness to our members, and educate our employees  in dementia awareness.  They will have the knowledge, understanding and skills to recognise and understand the challenges faced by carers and those who have dementia.   Locally, we aim to make our sites as dementia friendly as possible and offer activities to help both carers and those they care for attend our sites.

 

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

Our sites are wide spread, we aim to have several in house champions who will deliver dementia friends talks to staff and members alike.   

Our older sites are more difficult to update to make them environmentally dementia friendly but those areas that are being updated and refurbished will be done with dementia awareness in mind  and simple adjustments will be recommended.
