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?

By enabling people living with dementia to be part of the community and continue to do daily and social activities.

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

Limited time/resources; if staff numbers are limited, immediate help may not be possible.

2. Actions

  • Identify dementia friendly ways of working by offering alternatives, where possible, to people living with dementia.

    We will display a coin recognition chart to assist people who find distinguishing between different coins challenging.
