Why we want to become more dementia friendly:
The aim of the Teignbridge DAA is to ensure that Teignbridge district becomes a dementia friendly community.
“To transform the lives of people with dementia and those that care for them through building commitment and actions to deliver the Dementia Statements”. (April 2017 update to the old National Dementia Declaration).
- Raising awareness and understanding of the impact of dementia in our community
- Building a network of organisations that are committed to, and taking, action
- To improve the lives of people with dementia and their carers
- Enhancing member work to improve the lives of people with dementia
- Developing and delivering joint work on common dementia events
- Developing and updating outcome indicators to monitor the impact of the Alliance
- Running engaging member driven events (fun events).
