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 feel that we could primarily deliver on two of the seven statements from the National Dementia Declaration:

3. I have support that helps me live my life

5. I live in an enabling and supportive environment where I feel valued and understood

Asda aims to support all customers to have a positive experience when visiting our stores. By making our store dementia friendly and raising awareness of dementia amongst colleagues we feel that we will be providing support to customers to continue to engage in community life.

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

Staff turnover – ensuring that all staff are dementia aware and that they have the opportunity to attend a Dementia Friends session should they wish to.
