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?
There is a growing need for dementia friendly surroundings, as an increasing number of both care home residents and hospital beds are occupied by people with dementia. Research shows that healthcare design can have a huge impact on the health and well being of patients, relatives and carers. I believe that colour and good intelligent design, which carefully consider these needs are crucial to achieving the best results.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Making contact with the right people in order try and help make a difference. Understanding & perception of the importance that the environment can make & prioritising this when budgets are considered.
