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?

We are very aware of dementia and handling people with it on a daily basis and the actions we have chosen will hopefully increase our awareness and ability to help people with dementia (& their carers) further.

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

Time pressures.
