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?

Our work involves delivering support and services to vulnerable people, including people with dementia.

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

 

·         Time constraints (for training)

·         Financial constraints (for signage, training, staff time outside of training, material/resources)

·         Quality constraints in demonstrating/evidencing delivery of actions in the home and in SCA buildings/communities (linked also to financial constraints, as funding for all services is related to tightly defined outcomes and resource required to spot check quality provision)
