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?
Providing a safe environment for our residents 24/7. Trying to build better relationships with the local authoritie to work as team to provide a better quality of service all round.
To build a more empathetic relationship with relatives and gain a better understanding of needs and what it is like to live with dementia.
We employ 13 staff altogether.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We want to be effective in all mentioned above but need all staff and third parties to be fully on board and communicate well for the best possible outcome.
