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 always try and treat people with respect and help out wherever and however possible in a friendly manner in our newsagents
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We are a small independent retail business with a small shop staff, so finding the time to attend sessions is difficult.
