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 aim to offer the highest standard of customer care and, where we can, adapt to their needs.  

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

Making sure that all staff members are suitably trained.
