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?
APNA ALZHEIMER'S ASSOCIATION wants to provide weekly dementia cafe workshops, which stimulate emotional, physical and intellectual growth for those with dementia.
By providing this for socially isolated Pakistani & Indian women with dementia challenges in Nottingham we can help to enrich, engage and support their mental health wellbeing.
It is vital we act as a bridge for them integrating into the broader British society and other dementia groups.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
The challenges are having the right platforms to make known our charity & its cause. Finances are always a major factor for any self funded charity. Having a committed volunteer base is essential, however in this embryonic stage commitment is a battle.
