To fully understand challenges faced by those with dementia and be able to respond to their needs by providing a welcoming environment and staff who are able to assist
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

understanding and breaking down barriers and stigmas attached to people effected by dementia
