tide

At tide, we empower carers and former carers of people living with dementia, helping them to recognise that they are experts by experience. We believe that by working closely with carers and former carers, we can help them understand that, as experts, their voice matters, and can be used to bring about real change.

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 will try and recruit members locally to tide and speak to them to ascertain what they need to help them in their caring role .

 

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

It may be difficult to recruit members initially as the organisation is not well known locally. I will make an effort to get out into the community and run information sessions so that carers are aware of what we do and also what benefit it will be to them in their caring role.
