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 well as offering a first class dementia day service our company is also very active in supporting our local community. Voluntarily our trained staff member runs and facilitates three peer support groups and dementia cafes. These are a well attended free service for people living with dementia and their carers, family and friends. We regularly signpost to other support agencies, social services, the mental health team and GP's if necessary.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We offer dementia friends sessions to help carers understand dementia.
All time spent running these groups every month is taken from staff and company time.
Dementia Peer support
To continue to offer voluntary support within the local community in the form of dementia cafes and support groups.
Dementia Day Services
To continually offer first class day service to people living with dementia which also offers respite for carers.
Dementia Friends Sessions
