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 are able to act for them if they wish to organise their affairs for a time when they may not be able to deal with them. We ensure their future wishes are known and followed and can take action if family or friends try to take advantage of the situation.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
The usual challenges when you are dealing with people who often have conflicting requirements for the outcome.
