We asess individuals considering all areas of daily living considering their physical and mental health,
We look to promote independece through occupation chosen by the individual.
We also risk asess in individuals homes to ensure they have suitable aids and adaptations to enable them to live safely in their own home sof ras long as possible.
Carers needs and expectations are also assessed along side the individul to compliment the stuation,
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
The challeges are in regards to making the difficulties of each individual with dementia accepted and known, therefore enabling them to be understood.
Another challenge is the individual accepting what is happening to them and accepting the help.
