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?
Many of our clients have dementia. We are supporting them to live as independently as we can in their own homes.
Our CAREGivers receive dementia training. Home Instead's in house dementia training is City and Guilds accredited.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Our biggest challenge is finding and retaining the right people to work for us. We seek people with the right qualities where experience is less important.
Roll out Dementia awareness to a wider audience
Currently we just provide Dementia Awarenes training to our own staff. Our plan is to roll out awareness training to families of clients and eventually to others in the community.
We currently have one Dementia Champion but will shortly have two to increase our ability to run Dementia Friends sessions.
- Being implemented
Adapt our CAREGiver Training to improve Dementia Awareness.
Our City and Guild accredited training is lengthy and comprehensive and not all our staff are able to attend. Adapting our induction training to include a more comprehensive Dementia Awareness module will help to bridge this gap.
