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?

Age Space aims to provide the best single resource and guidance for families to support their elderly parents to enjoy as independent, healthy and secure old age as possible, and receive the best affordable care should they need it.

We want to provide people across the UK and locally with the tools and information to make the very best care decisions.

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

Understanding of dementia;

Navigating the way through the health and social care systems.

Feeling isolated and unable to make decisions about the best care solutions.
