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 have years of experience of providing social care transport for Bradford Council which has involved providing regular transport to day centres for dementia suffers. All our drivers are required to pass 4 taxi training modules with Bradford Council. The course is an awareness course covering transporting passengers with a wide range of special needs including people living with dementia . We form a good relationship with the client, their family or carers.

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

Euro Cars have  worked with social services for over 25 years and have seen many changes in raising awareness towards dementia sufferers. It is very important for us a a company to convey any changes and increase awarenes amongst our drivers .
