York Dementia Action Alliance, Yorkshire & Humber Dementia Action Alliance

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 are able to offer people services that meet their needs (outcome 2), support that helps people live their lives (outcome 3), offering a sense of belonging (outcome 4) and we make people feel valued and understood (outcome 5). We do this by being warm and welcoming to all visitors and making sure everyone feels safe and has individual tailored care, with useful advice to take home.

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

We need more of our colleagues to attend dementia awareness training (some already have). We need to make sure everyone is updated with the latest research and information. Joining the Alliance would give us that connection with others working for the same ends. There are many local organisations which are part of the Alliance and we can learn from each other. We are part of a Community Wellbeing Hub initiative that we hope will create even stronger links between us all.
