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 Dementia champion I inform all of our carers on dementia and customers families. We find that continuity and maintaining customers independence helps immensly. Bluebird Care Rother holds regular training updates for its care workers. This ensures that our staff understand the practical and emotional aspects of caring for people with dementia.  

Care visits are usually 30 minutes to an hour long. However, there is no upper time limit for our care visits. Indeed, many of our customers who have some form of dementia enjoy the support of one of our live-in carers to provide an additional level of reassurance. 

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