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?

Adapting treatment plans to individual needs 

Ensuring a patient can make an informed decision based on understanding of the information given.

Constantly reassesing and adjusting based on feedback from Dementia patients and their carers, as well as upto date research.

Offering a patient a safe environment, friendly and familiar for a patient to receive regular treatment, ensuring they live a pain free/dental disease free life.

 

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

Gaining feedback from patients.

Ensuring all staff have a firm understanding of a Dementia patients needs and updating their knowledge regulary.

Understanding that as a patient moves on to later stage Dementia, referring onto a community/higher body of care.

2. Actions

  • Minimising Wall Posters

    To streamline our waiting room notices. To make our walls more clutter free, changing to a few points of interest. To check which wall posters/notices are vital. Some items can be moved to the television notice. Any wall posters/notices will be easy to read, contrasting from the wall colour, clear and essential.

    Status:
    Being implemented
  • Disbaled Parking

    To apply to the local council authority to request a dissabled parking space at the front of the building.

    Especially during busy times, parking can be difficult due to the location of the practice.

    This will allow the patients and carer to have stress free parking, allowing their appointment to be more enjoyable, plus taking the strain of walking a further distance from their car to the practice.

    Investigating
  • Dementia Friendly Session Update

    To update our Dementia friendly training every 2 years, this will ensure any new staff have training.

    Als will ensure our knowledge is refreshed with any new information/research available.

    This will improve our patient care for Dementia patients

    Status:
    Being implemented
  • Referral Policy for Dementia Patients who require further services

    To ensure our policy is updated and implemented for patients who require referral for further services, such as those who are end of life.

    Treatment of patients can become difficult once their dementia has entered the later stages.

    We need to ensure all staff are aware and we have clear sign posted stages of referral. This will ensure the patient receives the best possible care.
