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?

As a leading provider of care in the community , we have a person centered care approach to helping clients live within their own homes. This is made possible by involving the family and the client at every step to ensure that evreything pertaining to them is well planned and has their best interest at the centre of it.

We currently support clients with Dementia to live well within their own homes and offer Dementia awareness to their Family, friends and the wider community.

As part of our ongoing training programme, we encourage all members of staff to become dementia friends and promote awareness 

Nationally we also have programmes to further the awareness of dementia 

 

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

The stigma attached to dementia by family and the wider community. Having to overcome barriers that are self imposed and educating people on how to overcome these prejudices and to equip them better to manage the condition.
