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 have a specialist team of lawyers within TWM who advise on, and provide solutions in relation to, the range of legal issues that can be encountered by people with dementia and their carers.

Our aim is also to be sympathetic and supportive in our meetings and dealings with people with dementia and their carers.

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

We need to keep up date with the changes in legislation and policy as they occur. We also need to keep up to date with the current case law, such as that from the Court of Protection, as it relates to people with dementia and their carers. This involves regular research, reading, study, discussion and adaptation of our procedures.

In addition, we need to ensure that as an organisation overall we are aware of, and sympathetic to, the needs of to people with dementia and their carers. This involves training those who do not regularly deal with such people how to do so appropriately.
