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 we are located in the heart of the town centre of Canvey Island, we see a lot of our local community on a regular basis.
By working with the local Dementia Community Support Team, we have built up our communication awareness and understanding of Dementia, where we can signpost our local residents to if they have concerns and can also act as a safe space if needed.
We will also support the DCST if they would like to hold any awareness raising events in the future.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
The staff on the team work various shifts, however we have received support to work around the staffing needs.
Staff to undertake Dementia Friends sessions
Our front line staff and management will be undertaking a Dementia Friends session to gain a better understanding of what Dementia is like to live with, and to increase communication skills.
