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?

All our care plans are tailor-made for each customer. We will listen to and find out their needs whilst always respecting their wishes throughout.

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

We can arrange care for customers who may need help and support so they can stay at home instead of moving into residential care
