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 major provider of acocomodation based services for older people ,we work directly with people who live with dementia at varying stages . Nationally last year our organisation won the LaingBuisson Award for Dementia Care within community and supported living . We would like to continue to develop our  local services and those of other organisations within out newtork  by involving, sharing good practice  and influencing our local area and communities, to bring together best practice and collaborative learning .

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

We already have a good understanding of the needs of people living with Dementia and their families as this is our primary client group. A challenge would be to get orgnaisations who may not see the benefit of investing in training their staff to be dementia aware , helping them see what an advantage it could be as everyone is in someway effected by Dementia; i.e could help them to review their HR policies , customer services polices , Generally how they function to ensure Dementia awareness is paramount to how they deliver tothe public.
