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?
Michael Flanders Centre works with older people providing day care with a person centred approach. Our aim is to enable older people with substantial and critical needs to remain living in their own homes by supporting them with a variety of day opportunities tailored to their individual need in a dignified manner.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
The challenges to delivering these outcomes are funding constraints and staffing resources especially with regards to the demands of Individuals changing needs and support/supervision required to attend day care.
On delivering our service, the challenges are the support required for customers for e.g more specialist care, constant 1:1 supervision and support, behaviour that is challenging and supporting staff to ensure that their health and well being is maintained.
