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?
We care, support and help patients with dementia, their families, carers, and friends.
We try and make the environment friendly and safe
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
making all staff members aware of the importance of the small things which can be done to support patients with dementia
Provide a safe environment for patients who have dementia, by making the waiting area calm and friendly.
Dementia Drop-in sessions
Putting patients at the centre of what we do, by holding dementia drop-in sessions for patients and their carers/family members. Tea, cake and chat with key speakers attending.
Listen and Learn
Ensuring patients with dementia feel they are being listened to.
All patients with dementia and their carers/family have a contact who they can easily access to talk to for support.
