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?
Being part of Barnsley's Sport and Active Lifestyles Partnership we work within Barnsley's local community to encourage individuals to stay healthy. Through gaining a better understanding and awareness about dementia we are better equipped to help individuals affected to continue living an active and fulfilling lifestyle.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We need to ensure that after receiving our dementia awareness sessions staff then incorporate their new knowledge into their day to day interactions with members of the public when working within Barnsley's communities.
