Worthing Dementia Action Alliance

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?

Becoming a member of the Dementia Action Alliance will help us to focus on a priority group.  It will help get the message out that Lions care about them and that we are sensitive to all forms of dementia as we are to sight related issues.  We have connections to the white stick and Helen Keller.  Lions are about action and volunteering for their fellow human being.

Worthing LIONS have a welfare committee and accept referrals for financial help from those in dire need of equipment or support.  We would encourage more groups and/or families to talk to us about how we can assist them.

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

We can quantify the impact upon the groups of people we help especially through the welfare committee over time.

Personal anecdotal evidence of the people's and Lion's experiences and increased knowledge on the LION's service work for people living with dementia.  We already support the Admiral Nurses but could do more.  Also the personal knowledge of Lions who have completed the Dementia Friends Information Sessions will enhance our decision making.
