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?

As an accredited training provider and Dementia friends, we are already talking to people about Dementia and the affects it has on not only the individual but also the wider family and friends. We train people to level 2 in Dementia and also have put in our application to provide care from our sister company AStar Homecare (www.astarhomecare.co.uk). I am very passionate about Dementia and will continue to train and support people as much as possible. We will also look to do days where we get people together when we are up and running with our care agency. We want to be involved in the local alliances to help support people as much as possible.

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

As a trainer we already deliver training and discussions on Dementia but would like to be more involved in the community too.
