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 will continue to tailor the service and care we deliver to any of our clients that are displaying the signs of dementia through ensuring we have a quiet space to meet with them and adjust the way in which we communicate and explain key aspects and services that will be relevant to them.
We will also ensure we support the Dementia Friendly Jesmond group through displaying their quarterly newsletter in our reception for our clients to read.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We will struggle to deliver an structural changes to our building to ensure it is more dementia-friendly, however we are now more aware of the certain perceptual aspects of the building and how it may look to someone with the disease.
We will ensure that all the solicitors that work directly with clients affected by dementia are sent on the Dementia Friends information session to broaden their knowledge and understanding of the disease.
