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

Key areas that challenge the outcomes RMBI Care Co. is committed to delivering are as follows: 

•          Effective public funding to support dementia care 

•          Support for families and anticipatory grief 

•          Recognition and value of care staff by the wider audience of stakeholders  to improve retention of staff 

•          Recognition and the value of home managers by the wider audience of stakeholders  in leading their teams in person-centred care 

•          Closer working relationships between all stakeholders to ensure smoother  and seamless well supported transitions between care settings 

•          Dementia is much more in the public domain but its research funding is much less than other less prevalent disease states 

•          Insufficient national psychosocial research sharing. 

•          Improved end of life care for residents with dementia 

•          Support for review and reduction of antipsychotic medicines 

•          Removing barriers to intergenerational work
