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 have participated in a Dementia Friendly Communities Workshop, all of us proudly signing up to become Dementia Friends.

The use of DAA logos on the website and within practice paperwork will show that we continue to work to become Dementia Friendly, along with notices placed within the premises.

Information leaflets are available in-house for patients living with dementia, along with those who are carers, highlighting resources and specialist support and advice.

We will give ongoing consideration to the environment in which our patients spend time, striving to meet the standards that are required of us, allowing for their visit to be as comfortable as possible. 

We will continue to develop our knowledge in order to give consistent quality care to patients living with dementia and those who care for them.

Participating in Dementia events such as Dementia Awareness week.

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

Time constraints may affect how quickly items can be completed and improved upon.

Staff availability and resources may affect event participation.

  • Selection of radio station within the waiting area

    We are to select a more appropriate radio station to be played to patients within the main waiting room. The type of music and atmosphere to be created is to be more soothing for patients living with dementia, giving them a calming and relaxed dental experience.
