Culture change is instigated by the realisation that there could be better outcomes by approaching the way we work differently. A clear vision forms, the path to shifting from the current culture to the vision of the new begins. Within the realms of dementia care, we want to shift away from a ‘doing to’ medical model to a‘being with’ person-centred model. It is important to remember that while walking the path of culture change within an organisation is a collective experience, it is also a very personal one. Having some awareness of this will be a key factor in the success of your culture change initiative.
Explore your creativity as it is often the creative ideas that instigate change. Creative ideas motivate us and give us a possibility to look at something we have always looked at in one way differently. Valuing creativity is valuing ideas and this can empower others to get on board and embrace the change process. It validates their ideas and them as individuals, their potential and their abilities. As a Dementia Champion, you are a key person in inspiring, maintaining and upholding the key principles and values of the change toward this.
