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?

Bluebird Care know that caring for someone with dementia at home can be demanding and challenging. Dementia symptoms grow worse over time, and there’s no way to predict how quickly the disease will progress or exactly how behaviour will change. 

Managing basic activities of daily living like eating, talking, sleeping, dressing and finding things to do can be hard not only for the person  but also for the family, especially as the disease becomes more severe..

We are committed to helping people live well with dementia and this is done though training our staff and promoting the dementia friends programme. As Director Dean Slade is a dementia champion.

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