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?

Improving customer service through increasing staff awareness and understanding of dementia.

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

Lack of knowledge/understanding amongst our staff/community.

Limited time/resources.

This is not the primary purpose of our business/organisation/group.

2. Actions

  • Dementia awareness raising for all staff

    We are planning to train our 4 members of staff in being more dementia-aware.

  • Improve access and signage in our facilities/environment

    We are interested in making our community centre more dementia-friendly by putting up improved signage.
