Care UK is one of the leading care providers in the UK, We at Cumberland specialise in caring individuals with dementia and also challenging behaviour. Care UK have been providing high quality care for older people for 30 years. Today our 100-plus residential care homes enable more than 7,000 people to continue living active and independent lives in warm, safe and comfortable surroundings. Personalised care is at the heart of what we do. Many of our homes deliver a comprehensive range of care under one roof, including nursing, respite and dementia care. We appreciate that no two residents are the same, so our compassionate and experienced nurses and carers ensure that each person receives care that’s tailored to their unique needs, personality and wishes.

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?
We offer support to those living with dementia as well as those who once cared for them and their family and friends. Our aim is to empower each individual in our care and play to thier strengths rather than concentrating on their weaknesses.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
It can be a challenge to achieve this with individuals living with dementia, however staff use techniques and knowledge learnt through continuous in house training.
