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?

As a care provider, we already provide care and support to people with dementia and their families.  We aim to make sure that our support is the best it can be and like to be able to point families and carers to other sources of support. 

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

There are no challenges – we will be able to do this and also want to make a difference within our local community in relation to dementia awareness generally. 

2. Actions

  • Dementia Awareness raising for staff

     Ensure all customer facing staff are dementia aware. We will run a Dementia Workshop for most current staff.
