We are a 65 bedded home, situated in Exeter. We provide nursing and dementia care and pride ourselves on creating a caring, safe and stimulating living environment for our residents. The social needs of our residents are very important to us and we are keen to share best working practices. We also do our best to care for the relatives and families that we come into contact with.

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 try to tailor the activities within the home to make sure residents living with dementia gain something from them.
We hold Dementia Friends sessions for staff and families.
Sanctuary Care itself is currently working on a new dementia strategy to help improve the lives of our residents.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We have no barriers other than time/capacity. We hope to have our strategy completed and implemented as soon as possible.
