1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists a number of outcomes that we 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?

Provide support to patients and carers from time of diagnosis through Day Therapy where they can be supported to make decisions about future care and work in partnership with other organisations to provide appropriate care during their illness and  including end of life care through our  Hospice at Home  service.

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

Ensuring robust triggers within disease specific pathways for referral to appropriate palliative care services. Developing partnerships to ensure shared care.

2. Actions
