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?
The police service regularly encounters members of the public suffering with dementia. I would like to improve the way which officers deal with people suffering from dementia and their families. I am hoping to increase understanding within East Herts Policing area.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Increasing the police service's understanding of dementia and how best to deal with people suffering from dementia.
Dementia Champion Training
I am currently signed up to become a dementia champion. This will allow me to offer training to officers in order to increase the awareness and assist in dealing with people suffering with dementia.
