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?

Our company aim is to help residents become more active and improve their physical and mental wellbeing.

To improve interaction and social cohesion within the care home.

To reduce the number of referrals to urgent and emergency care services.

To help provide care homes with fully managed programmes of interactive activities helping to alleviate some of those responsibilities from the care homes.

To reduce referrals and visits from doctors and other medical services.

To engage care home residents and people living with dementia to improve the quality of their lifestyle and interaction opportunities. 

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

There will be activities planned out for each individual. Each activity will focus on each individual’s ability to improve and to become active. To create such an environment for the elderly that will improve on their health and to take the element of loneliness away from them.

All employees of Age Inspiration will become dementia friends so that they have a better understanding of the residents they will work alongside.
