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?
The firm is in the service industry therefore should be well placed to enhance the legal experience of someone living with dementia. There is a hope that we can engender dementia-friendly or considerate law for all our clients.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Our staff have not all attended the Dementia Friends' sessions and so could find themselves not actually supporting the clients in the best way possible. Our aim would be to educate as many willing staff members as possible and to create awareness of dementia and how it affects more than just the person living with it.
Offer Dementia Friend course to all staff (with particular reference to our receptionists who are the front face of our firm). Ideal is to have course offered to all three offices starting one office at a time.
Create a dementia friendly environment
Use the checklists from the Alzheimers Society to see what we can do in our reception ares and meeting rooms to create a safe environment.
Support our local DAA and raise awareness
Provide legal advice and support when needed eg information tables/ meetings
