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?

 The company is in the process of arranging a ‘Dementia Friends’ session for staff and choir members so that we can better meet the needs of people living with dementia and their carer’s.

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

The company has not identified any challenges in delivering this outcome.
