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?

To support the quality of life of people living with dementia and memory loss and their carers and families. We are passionate to get early diagnosis for our patients so that good clinical care can be provided to them. We will keep in contact with our dementia champion.

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

Identifying sufficient time for staff training initially and then up date training in the future.

Keeping abreast of changes including publications and posters in order to provide the best and most accurate information.

2. Actions

  • Train staff

    Staff in the Practice to attend awareness sessions and become Dementia Friends.
