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?

Robert Holland Funeral Directors Ltd would like to become a Dementia Friendly organisation to ensure that people who are suffering from Dementia and their relatives/ carers are treated correctly and with care

We want to understand the needs of people with dementia and their carer’s in order to provide appropriate service to them at their time of need

We will do this by arranging training for our staff and volunteers and by working with the South West Lincolnshire Dementia Action Alliance and local Alzheimer’s Society to explore ways in which our organisation can become Dementia Friendly.

We will participate in Dementia Awareness sessions delivered by the local Alzheimer’s Society

We will work towards 100% of our staff becoming a Dementia Friends

We will work in partnership with local DAA, Alzheimer’s Society & their members to welcome recommendations to improve the environment within our premises

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

Challenges to delivering our training could be stigma from staff and volunteers about dementia, time and opportunity to arrange and to participate in training internally whilst continuing to provide an outward facing operation to clinets. We will work with all of our staff to ensure that things progress smoothly.
