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?

Co-op has always been forefront in delivering to the community. We do a lot of charity work and fundraising for our local communities.  I feel that we could be better at looking at the outcomes for those people with dementia and their carers. It is important to be inclusive and those people with dementia and their carers need to have their needs met like any body else and I think it is important to adapt as a business to facilitate this.

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

Challenges might be a lack of awareness. We should know more about dementia, how it affects the individual and how we can help.
