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?

Dementia Yorkshire's role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers is to listen to the individuals needs, opinions and suggestions about how their local area can be improved. We then work to implement these where possible working with businesses and organisations, to ensure amenties and community events are dementia friendly.

We will provide individuals within the local community an understanding about dementia, reducing stigma and isolation.

We will continue to hold themed activity sessions within the community for those living with dementia, their families and carers. We invite individuals living within the city to volunteer, whilst also working with other local charities and businesses to provide vital links within the community.

 

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

The challenges our organisation face include making initial contact with those living with dementia in the community to make them aware of the service we offer.

Making businesses/organisations and individuals aware of how making small changes, can make a big difference to those living with dementia in their daily lives.
