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?

Being a member will provide a platform of information, research findings for the individual care homes to follow the importance of exercise and walking to increase 02 levels.

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

Difficulties will vary according to the individual’s needs. By connecting, listening, adapting and understanding these and being flexible in day to day requirements and changes. Being able to provide a variety of interest with one to one care along with group activities.

2. Actions

  • Welcoming Environment

     To provide a welcoming, safe, secure and comfortable environment and keep update with research, e.g. The British Gymnastics Foundation is promoting different exercises to stimulate different areas of the brain and body.

    Diagrams of all types of these exercises are available from these outside sources which will be of excellent value. We do have sessions in the home at least four times a week incorporation movement whilst sitting and we also aim to sustain this activity whilst also engaging with the community in bringing stimulation into the home for the residents to engage with.

    Being implemented
