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?

We create signage to assist people with dementia, by using colour, fonts and graphical images to enable memory recognition of facilities they require in every day life. Through consultation with individual organisations we are able to tailor bespoke signage to be specific to their environment.

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

The challenges we may face would be to ensure that organisations are aware of the service we are able offer and allow ourselves to come in and tailor a package to your environment. Also allow the customer to know that the cost would be a positive invesment.
