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 the largest landowner within Newmarket and by using our land assets we want to promote awareness of dementia within the community and support people living with dementia, to give them a sense of belonging and being a valued part of family and community life by providing a safe and supported out door environment.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We need further Dementia Friends sessions due to the number of staff and their different work hours. As well as ensuring our existing workforce becomes dementia aware, we need to include dementia awareness in all new staff Induction Programmes.
Improve our understanding of Dementia
We will put the necessary measures in place to increase dementia awareness among our staff so they understand the condition and the ways in which we, as a company, can provide support to people living with dementia.
Work in partnership with Newmarket DAA
Jockey Club Estates will work with the Newmarket Dementia Action Alliance to support Newmarket to become a dementia friendly community and encourage other organisations to attend Dementia Friends sessions and sign up to the Dementia Action Alliance.
Promoting dementia awareness
Jockey Club Estates will display the NDAA window sticker to show it is a member of the NDAA and therefore a dementia friendly business.
