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?
Ten years ago the outcomes for someone diagnosed with Dementia were limited and leaned inevitably towards residential care. However as our understanding of the condition has increased, so has evidence that quality care at home can have a real impact on stabilising and even slowing the progression of the most common Dementia symptoms.
Familiarity and regular routines are key to reducing distress, so receiving consistent support from specially trained CareGivers in the familiar home environment is ideal wherever possible.
A healthy diet, suitable exercise and cognitive stimulation have all been shown to have a positive impact on dementia symptoms and we work with our clients to ensure they are getting the best possible care whilst also meeting their personal choices.
How can we help?
Our friendly staff at Right at Home Ealing & Hounslow can ensure the home environment remains safe and advise on any adaptions that will make life easier. We also work with clients and their loved ones to provide emotional support and respite, to access local services and to adapt the care package to ensure changing needs are anticipated and always met.
Now, more than half of Right at Home’s UK clients are people with dementia living independently at home. In many cases your local owner and manager will be official Dementia Champions, trained by the Alzheimer’s Society to deliver free information and awareness sessions across the local community.
We understand; we care and we can help by supporting you on many different levels.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
The key challenge remains recruiting the right people and providing the appropirate training to deliver Dementia Care consistently
