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?
We have personal experience with relatives living with dementia, therefore we are aware of the effects of dementia 1st hand.
The aim of W S Wigg is to support people living with dementia to have a sense of belonging and being a valued part of family and community life.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Time and resources.
