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 quality care to adults and in particular the elderly and face many clients with dementia on a daily basis. We have appointed demetia champions who raise awareness amongst our community of dementia. All our employees are dementia friends. We also have in house specialist dementia training for all our CAREGivers to allow them to understand the condition and work better around those they are looking after. We believe in assisting and empowering all our clients to live a better quality of life at home.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Our in house specialist training allows all staff to understand dementia better. We seek to actively promote dementia awareness but have found venues difficult to come across to create events. We intend to generate interest of campaigns through social media however this may miss a range of audiance.
