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 consider local members of the meeting about what we can do to help those affected by the condition.
We are liaising with the Leeds Dementia Action Alliance to get support about becoming a dementia friendly place of worship.
We hold dementia awareness meetings where people can share their personal experience and advice.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Making changes to the physical environment of the meeting, could cause some 'upset's to members. Also justifying the cost of some of the environmental changes.
Another challenges is to now what are the most important changes to make, to become a dementia friendly venue.
We are holding a meeting for people living with dementia and carers to assess our building, and highlight some changes needed to make it more dementia friendly. We have new signage around the premises that is dementia friendly to help orientate people.
Dementia Awareness sessions
We will hold a dementia friends sessions for members of our meeting, and other meetings in Leeds.
Advertise dementia friendly events
We will use our community board to share dementia friendly groups and local events with our members and the community in general.
