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?

By ensuring that our staff our aware of the issues people with Dementia may face, and to strive to alleviate any of these issues.

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

It might be difficult for us to change our signage, however we will liaise with DAA andthe original building designer to update and improve the signage.
