2 Welcome If you have picked this plan up you must be interested in the work of Alzheimer Scotland, perhaps as someone we support, a partner, family member, carer, friend, member, funder, fundraiser, volunteer or one of the team. In Alzheimer Scotland we want to make sure no one goes through the experience of dementia on their own and there are two main objectives that help us achieve this and drives all our work: being the foremost provider of support services and information for people with dementia, their families and friends throughout Scotland and being the leading force for change at all levels of society, protecting and promoting the rights of people with dementia, their families and friends. For many years we have provided a range of direct support services and the 24 hour Dementia Helpline to make sure this is the case, and we have campaigned vigorously to achieve change. More recently we have embarked upon new initiatives. We have funded a network of Dementia Advisors and a Dementia Nurse programme as well as supporting vital research, all as a result of the invaluable support we receive from the Scottish public and other funders. This plan explains to you how we intend to keep doing that over the next three years, how we intend to do it better and how we intend to do more of it.
Final Version approved by Council 26/03/10 3 Our plan We think that the best way to get results is to work on the key issues and to have a clear sense of direction and of what we want to achieve. Throughout 2009, we spent a lot of time talking with people with dementia, our managers and staff, local branches and people interested in our work. We agreed the ten main areas we need to focus on over the next three years to achieve our objectives. These are the themes for this plan. The themes are grouped into four sections, in line with our objectives: How we are going to be the foremost provider of support and information How we are going to be the leading force for change How we are going to keep getting better at what we do How we are going to do more of it As you read on you will see that we set out what we intend to do and what we hope to achieve in each of these areas. You will see the staff who have committed to achieving this and the senior managers who will mentor them. Each team will work together to deliver these outcomes. The Directors will ensure that we progress towards achieving each outcome by planning key actions and milestones every six months. You can also watch the DVD of this plan and see some of the real people who are doing their very best to be a source of support and a force for change in the lives of people with dementia, their families and friends. I hope you enjoy both and that you think we are on the right track. If not, I would be really interested to hear any ideas you have or ways that you think we could do better. Don’t hesitate to get in touch. Many thanks Henry Simmons Chief Executive
Final Version approved by Council 26/03/10 4 How we work People with dementia, their families and carers are at the centre of everything we do. We recognise that every person with dementia has unique needs and also that the needs of family members and carers are different. In developing all our work, ideas and policies we involve people with dementia and their families. They are active within our services, our branches and our governing body and through our close partnership with the Scottish Dementia Working Group. Their views and needs run deep in the veins of this plan and meeting their aspirations is the measure by which we will judge our success. All our work is governed by our Council. There are thirty council members who are elected from our membership base of around 4,000 people. The Council brings together people with dementia, carers, experienced professionals and committed activists and has overall responsibility for our work. The Council appoint an Executive Committee who supervise and support the senior managers to ensure that we are doing all that we can to meet our objectives. The chart on the opposite page shows you the ten main themes that we are working towards and how we place people with dementia, their family and carers at the centre of this.
