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 deliver person-centred assistance to people who have dementia, to help them live an independent life for as long as possible. to help the family and educate them on dementia and how they can help their loved one live an independent and quality life. we have respite days, carers assessments, family support, crisis interventions and social activities. we make sure that people are protected from abuse avoid physical, psychological or emotional harm. we strive for peoples care, treatment and support achieves good outcomes and people are properly supported to live their lives to experience best health and quality of live outcomes.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
we are a relatively young charity and we are still finding our feet. although we are growing we take the time to make sure we can deliver our services to everyone that contacts us. if we cant assist the person we signpost to other services who are better suited to assist them. we have a small team of a few people at the moment which dictates on how much work we can do.
