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?

Page Fine Jewellery is located in the middle of Newmarket's High Street and through the correct training and awareness sessions, our staff will be able to improve their customer service skills so that they will be able to recognise customers that are vunerable.

We would want to prioritise the promotion of dementia issues to our customers so that those living with dementia can feel at ease when shopping with us. 

Through training and practice, we hope to recognise issues that arise and continue to work on them through extra training sessions

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

As a company we would need to set aside time in order for our current staff to undergo the correct training so that it can be put into place as soon as possible.

As well as our current staff needing trainign we would also make it a priority that all new members of staff are given this training in their inductions as well. 

2. Actions

  • Raising Awareness of Dementia to Customers

    We will make sure that our membership to the DAA is visible and noticeable for all of our customers and that when there is mention of it by a customer we will explain to them what the DAA is and what our membership involves.
