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 local charity working with the aged community within Banstead, we are fully aware of the challenges people with dementia face.  Many of our volunteers are already Dementia Friends and it is a natural progression for us to therefore support the work of the Banstead Dementia Action Alliance to make the local area Dementia Friendly.

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

The time it will involve to be fully committed to the Alliance as the majority of our staff are volunteers and give their time freely.

2. Actions

  • Aim for our volunteers to all become Dementia Friends

    Arrange some Dementia Friends Information Sessions

  • Request a free dementia guide for all customer facing staff.

    We will contact the Alzheimers Society to download the guide.

  • Use correct language when talking to someone with dementia.

    By attend the Dementia Friends sessions and thinking about how we will talk to both people with dementia and their families, carers and supporters.

    Being implemented
