Action Plan

Innovations in Dementia is a community interest company. Our work supports people with dementia to keep control of their lives and be happy. We do this by running innovative projects, by providing a training and consultancy service and by influencing how others work with people with dementia. People with dementia are at the heart and start of all our work. We promote a positive view of dementia, demonstrating that although dementia is life changing it does not have to be life ending.

Commitment 1 - Relating to:

Through our work with the DEEP network we will continue to find ways for people with dementia to have an impact on decisions within their local communities.

 

How will your organisation achieve Commitment 1?

 

By bringing opportunities for influence to the attention of local groups and supporting them in taking the necessary actions

  • We have the right to be recognised as who we are, to make choices about our lives including taking risks, and to contribute to society. Our diagnosis should not define us, nor should we be ashamed of it.

Commitment 2 - Relating to:

Through our Getting Along programme we will continue to develop ways of supporting couples to manage the changes that dementia brings to their relationships

 

How will your organisation achieve Commitment 2?

 

By continuing to provide training to organisations that want to roll out Getting Along programmes and approaches in their areas.

  • We have the right to continue with day to day and family life, without discrimination or unfair cost, to be accepted and included in our communities and not live in isolation or loneliness.

Commitment 3 - Relating to:

All of our work is focused on supporting people to have a say in decisions that affect their lives.

 

How will your organisation achieve Commitment 3?

 

By continuing to focus on our five key areas of work - Rights, Accessibility, Dementia Voices, Belonging, and Recovery and Discovery

  • We have the right to be respected, and recognised as partners in care, provided with education, support, services, and training which enables us to plan and make decisions about the future.
