Blandford Stour Rotary Club

We belong to the worldwide organisation of rotary clubs- service clubs for all ages, genders, and political and religious beliefs. We combine service to the community, vocational service and financial backing, locally, nationally and internationally. Our club was formed in 1998 from a group of past round table members, other Rotarians and other members of the community.

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 aim to support our local and national dementia action alliance partners both with service and financial help.

 

We would also wish to make sure our club itself is dementia friendly.

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

The main challenge would be to keep the dementia friendly process of the club to the fore, in the running of the club and in the minds of the members. All the members have other responsibilities and roles which may/will be more  important than their place in the club at times.

2. Actions

  • Support for future members with memory loss.

    The club  will need to be aware that there will be applications in the future to join the club from people with existing memory problems. Therefore the club must make sure that it is already in a position to accept and help these applicants as much as possible.

  • New members dementia friendly training

    All new members of the club will be asked to attend local dementia friendly training sessions so that they can be ready to have a role in this area of the clubs expertise. By this reasoning, all members of the club who have not already attended these sessions will be encouraged to do so.

  • Provide help to the locality to be dementia friendly

    The club is involved in many areas of the town and locality, for example:Georgian Fair, Yuletide Festival, and funding of local projects. Whenever we become involved the club should be aware of ensuring these actions are Dementia Friendly and to provide help to do so when possible.
