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 will ensure we work together with Charities and other Healthcare Professionals to create a better understanding of Dementia. Through our own extensive training our Carers will deliver person-centred care to all our customers and those using the services provided by the Dementia Action Alliance. Through knowledge, understanding, care and compassion we will support families and friends through their journey to provide as fulfilled a life as possible for those affected by Dementia in our community.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
There will be difficulties surrounding misunderstanding and misconceptions of Dementia. Through imparting information and signposting clients and their families and friends to meaningful support and services we can help people to stay as independent and live the life they want for as long as possible.
We will work together with Alzheimer’s UK and the Dementia Action Alliance to find a cure for Dementia and until that day comes we will overcome people’s fear and lack of knowledge by doing all we can to create a more Dementia-friendly society.
There will also be problems surrounding funding of services. We will overcome this through fundraising to support research. We will work with Charities and Community projects in any way we can through attending meetings and joining forums to promote services and activities for those with Dementia in the Borough of Lambeth.
