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 support people in remaining independent and provide help to continue doing the things that they like to do, provide services which enable people to remain in the own home, including providing daily living aids, provide support via home visiting and groups to be able to meet people with similar interests, needs etc.

We hope to provide volunteers and staff with the knowledge of services and support to pass on to people and/or their families. With the help of volunteers we help to reduce social isolation and continuing being part of the community.

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

Having volunteers realise the necessity of such training, due to a lack of understanding

Having capacity of staff to provide these sessions

Financial constraints
