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?
Every Sunrise care home features a dedicated specialised dementia care area that is devoted entirely to people living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. We call them our ‘reminiscence’ neighbourhoods. It is similar to the high quality specialised care available in our Assisted Living neighbourhoods but with a particular focus on understanding people who are living with the effects of dementia.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Supporting families and the wider communities to understand the breadth and complexity of dementia and its journey.
Raising awareness amongst health care professionals to appreciate the reach and impact of Sunrise
Promote awareness of monthly dementia cafe
Share information about free monthly dementia café with all members of Croydon Dementia Action Alliance and invite clients along that they know of.
Increasing awareness of dementia amongst families and the wider community
Dementia friend’s sessions on a regular basis open to all.
Share best practice with others members of the Croydon Dementia Action Alliance
Sunrise Senior Living has a wealth of knowledge in terms of practical experience within its wider group. Invite experts from within Sunrise Senior Living to speak at Croydon Dementia Action Alliance meetings to share best practice from across the group.
