Right at Home Bromley
We firmly believe that care should be a wonderful, life changing experience that not only maintains but strives to improve confidence, independence and wellbeing. Individual personal needs and choices are at the heart of everything we do, our care is “outcome focused” meaning that we support Clients to achieve what they want – whether that be the ability to walk unaided to the bottom of the garden or go dancing and swimming. For us, its so important to recruit only the best CareGivers, we only recruit those who are caring, compassionate and genuinely want to make a difference to people's lives.

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?
People are at the heart of everything we do. Our CareGivers are trained to help people with dementia. We actively encourage our clients to play an active role in their community and to continue to pursue their hobbies and interests. It is important that people with dementia continue to maintain their lifestyle as much as possible.
As part of our commitment to helping people with dementia and their carers, we have opened a dementia cafe in Bromley Common to tackle social isolation.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Lack of knowledge and information some people have in relation to dementia. It is important to educate communties, so that we are all able to support those with dementia better.
