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?

Abbeyfield Ferring Society is an organisation that is concentrating their efforts on devoloping services for people living with dementia and their carers by adding dementia services to thier strategic planning for the next 5 years. Services will be based in and provided for, our local community and the residents of Ferring and its surrounding area.

Abbeyfeild Ferring Society currently support people living with dementia and mild cognitive impairment in their care home and supported living services and we are deveolping our Domiciliary Care service to provide care and support for people living with dementia who are still living in the community but in need of aditional support. We are also aiming to develop a community hub within the Ferring area to offer services and advice on Dementia for local people.

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

We are currently in a position where we are looking for new suitable premises from which to provide the services planned, in such a small area this may be challenging.

We are already a well established care provider within the Ferring area and currently there is no such provision locally, therefore this will fill a much needed void for our residents living in the commnuity

We are already in the process of training our staff teams in dementia support and we are aiming to recruit volunteers to assist us also.
