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 will continue to provide high quality health services to local people living with dementia and their carers.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Increase Staff AwarenessOrganise for staff to become ‘Dementia Friends’ online to give them a greater understanding of dementia and how patients may be effected in different ways.
Use TechnologyContinue to use the EMIS alert system to notify staff of patients with dementia.
Patient EnvironmentUse the ‘Dementia Friendly Physical Environment Checklist’ to review patient areas
