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?

We would like to be able to provide a better service to all our customers no matter of age or condition and being aware of dementia means we can the treat each person with respect and adjust our service to them. 

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

Our limited knowledge of Dementia. That is why we are investing in time for training

  • To continue to promote our Dementia friendly service

    We have continued to work with our clients and we do mention the Dementia Friendly training to put people at ease. I have used the course on several occasions when at clients homes. We have also sourced specific ranges of carpets and different colours of door mats to ensure that these are not dark or small repeat patterns to help those people who may find these unsettling. We are just trying to accommodate as many options as possible to mean people can stay and enjoy their homes for longer.
