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 are very community driven and would like to throw our support behind the Jesmond Dementia Action Alliance. We are keen to raise our awareness and knowledge of dementia in order to better prepare and serve any customers who are showing the signs of the disease.
We are also keen to be seen as a safe and welcome place for everyone in the area, and understand that displaying the 'Working to become dementia-friendly' window sticker can alert locals to our inclusive nature.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
The challenges we will face is time. We will have to carry out the Dementia Friends session online as we do not have any spare time to attend a session in person.
We would also struggle to make any structural changes to the cafe in order for it to become more dementia-friendly due to space constraints.
We will be carrying out the online Dementia Friends session in order to heighten our knowledge and awareness of dementia, and therefore better serve our client base that are affected by the disease.
