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?

Ensuring that volunteers and members of the League are more aware of how to identify with dementia suffers, to understand the various forms of dementia that exist and how they are manifested . To enable volunteers assisting at clinics, exercise groups and fund raising functions to deal with dementia sufferers in an effective and compassionate manner.

Several volunteers have trained as dementia friends and it is planned to extend this training to the remaining volunteers and members in May of this year.

 

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

Ensuring that sufficient volunteers and members attend the training sessions and apply the training in a sensible manner.
