Then following up the problems with those in a position to improve them,GP's, Consultants, Hospitals, Care Homes and Care agencies and the voluntary organisations.

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?

Our role is to challenge areas of poor performance, which come to light through our conversations with "Duos".

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

The provision of Carers well trained and properly paid.

Proper support for Carers.  Information readily available with a Care co-ordinator to support them. (Advocacy, benefits, Legal info., Power of Attorney, etc..)
