1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists a number of outcomes that we 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?

Boots will ensure it can touch as many people with Dementia in Lincoln/South Lincs by being there to help them and their carers with response to managing their medicines through the use of our Medisure system. This system can ensure compliance and hopefully help prevent worry. We will also participate in Regional events with Dementia Action Alliance and hopefully raising the awareness of what can be done to help people coping with Dementia.We can use our skills to help other members to understand our role in helping people with Dementia and also help them. 

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

The challenges we come across is helping people coping with Dementia maybe when their family are not around, they have very little support and often conversations over the phone are tricky. Staff being Dementia aware in our stores and knowing more ways we can help them. Understanding what DAA do in our locality and how carers and patients with Dementia can access support from DAA.
