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?

Beverley Town Council would support the work of the local the Alzheimer’s Society and other local organisations to support people with dementia and their carers and family members.

Beverley Town Council would work with the Police and nursing homes to ensure if people with Alzheimers are lost there is a process to return them safely to the care of the nursing home or family members.

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

Ensuring all Councillors are aware of the Action Plan.
