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?
People living with Dementia often find change confusing and threatening, this is why arranging care in their home can be the best possible option as they know their surroundings. Your life is a friendly company to work for and when we are employing staff we ensure they are all DBS checked, we will then ensure they have all the training they need to deal with any difficult situations. The carers are all person centred to each different Service users. The organisation's have regular meetings with carers to see if there is any issues they need support training. We will work with family's to give the best possible care to there parents/family member. We work alongside GPS Health care assistants.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
There are challenges when family's don't understand the extent of their parents condition, as they don't understand the deterioration process. As we are independent living its a challenge when they leave the building and we are looking for them, families don't understand that we can't refuse their access to leave. There are challenges when other Home owners don't understand what is happening and they are speaking out of term.
