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 support those living with dementia in the community by offering a free dementia café every month. We also offer support for those caring for loved ones living with dementia by putting on regular pamper days and hosting support groups at our care home. We have a community at our home specifically designed for those living with dementia and we would like to offer this out to members of the community to join in activities and events with us.  We are also offering regular Dementia Friends information sessions for the community to help further the understanding of dementia.               

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

Our challenges are getting the word out into the community to those that need our support or would like to use our free services.               

2. Actions

  • Support those living with dementia in the community

    We will be supporting those who are living with dementia in the community by offering a free dementia café every month. These will include support for the carers and some time for them to relax, activities for those living with dementia.
