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?

At Elgar Care we ensure we offer the highet quality of care. We always support our staff, specialise their training, so the quality is of the highest standard. We offer specific training courses in Dementia, which improves their communication skills, how to approach someone who is suffering with Dementia.

Elgar Care are getting more and more invovled with local events in relation to Dementia. Our knowledge is always improving, which enables us to support those with Dementia, families, and our staff.  

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

Dementia is such a complex situation, no one person is the same when they are suffering with Dementia, the training we provide and the level of support we offer goes a long way. The challenge is knowing what the individual will be like as mentioned, each one is different.

  • Community Involvement

    Elgar Care truly believes any individual with Dementia shouldn't be left behind, we are trying to involved individuals with community projects as much as possible, with a small bit of research by anyone and you can see what a difference it can make with someone who has Dementia when they get invovled with others, where it be at a community centre, or a local event. Just being involved with something really does lift their spirits, makes them feel apart of something again. Social idenity is extremely important, raising their self esteem will improve their wellbeing.
