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?
The Local Care Company strives to produce positive outcomes for both clients with dementia and their carers. With extensive training, our carers are well equipped for the challenges of caring for those with dementia. Through communication and our company values we work together with medical professionals, family members, and most importantly the client themselves to provide the highest standard of care. Our values are; the needs of our clients come first. Teamwork through the organisation. Mutual respect. Commitment to quality. Community involvement.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Challenges to delivering positive outcomes include; Increasing awareness and acceptance in the wider community. Increasing knowledge and understanding from family members and friends. Feedback and support from other local businesses is essential for us to help make our community as dementia-friendly as possible.
