1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists a number of outcomes that we 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?

Members of the Lions Club of Falmouth and Penryn are volunteers who serve the community. We understand a lot of work has been undertaken in Falmouth before we were involved, but we are prepared to help in the delivery of a Dementia Friendly Community if assistance is needed here, and we will be ready to act when a Dementia Friendly Community is initiated in Penryn.

We would raise awareness of dementia amongst our members.

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

Lack of knowledge amongst our members.

2. Actions
