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 would like to support our customers caring for or living with dementia in order to make their experience in our shop comfortable and pleasurable.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We need to communicate across our shops that we are all on board to support this important issue affecting our communities.
Customer Facing Guide
We will ask all of our paid staff and volunteer staff to download the Customer Facing Guide and become educated in communicating with customers affected by dementia.
Using appropriate language
We will ask all of our paid staff and volunteer staff to learn about the appropriate language to use when talking to someone living with dementia.
Provide a quiet corner
We will put a chair in our book corner to create a quiet space for customers who need it.
