Bury Dementia Action Alliance

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?

  • Access dementia training so that I have a greater understanding of dementia and the challenges it brings i.e. become a dementia friend.
  • Attend the community dementia services in Bury i.e. dementia cafe and singing for the brain and the dementia action alliance meetings so I can become involved and engaged in promoting dementia friendly communities.
  • I am happy to volunteer at any events which raise the awareness of dementia and support the community.
  • To promote dementia to other business/contacts I have in recognising the needs of those with dementia and their carers.

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

  • Lack of dementia knowledge
  • Lack of awareness and the challenges that come for those living with dementia and for carers supporting them within my retail business
