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 belive that older people are entitled to the help that they need to improve their own sense of wellbeing, to work in partnership with others to seek to educate and influence key decision makers.By offering a wide variety of services here at Rotary House on the day / days the client attends such as Bathing, Hairdressing, Footcare, along with Activitys, and a cooked lunch aimed at improving the quality of life for our Dementia clients at a price they can afford. Enabling carers a free day or days.

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

Long term commitment of the broader community.
