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?
Helping to improve universal access to services and information. Becoming more dementia friendly so that we can confidently help individuals affected by dementia.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Making sure that we include people from difficult-to-reach communities.
Increasing Dementia Friendliness
Colliers Wood Library was designed to be dementia friendly, and staff have already become dementia friends. Further steps to be taken are improving signage around the library, and offering Dementia Friends information sessions to volunteers.
