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?
It would be great to be more aware of the signs of dementia because we could recognise it in our clients or be able to understand more talking to clients with family members affected by dementia.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We will require an awareness talk about dementia.
Improve our understanding of Dementia
We will arrange for all staff/volunteers to be dementia aware to ensure greater understanding of the condition and how we can help.
Work in partnership with Newmarket DAA
Altered Image will work with the Newmarket Dementia Action Alliance to support Newmarket to become a dementia friendly community and encourage other organisations to attend Dementia Friends sessions and sign up to the Dementia Action Alliance.
Promoting dementia awareness
Altered Image will display the NDAA window sticker to show it is a member of the NDAA. Also when applicable and appropriate the dementia friendly sticker, to demonstrate it is a dementia friendly Retailer.
