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?

I worked for Alzheimer Scotland as practice team leader for 14 years and was also the Dementia lead for NHS greater Glasgow working on the dementia strategy and I want all my carers to be dementia aware so they have a better understanding when supporting people and their families who are living with the diagnoses. In Scotland I was involved in Motherwell becoming the first Dementia friendly town in the UK and would like to see this becoming more wide spread.

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

Observing carers when they are supporting those with dementia, feedback from the effectiveness of the training from the carers

2. Actions

  • Joint working partnerships

    I think joint working is important and having the connections within different organisations so we are able to support the individuals and their families
