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 can help clients with dementia by supporting them and their families to find practical solutions to day to day problems. We do this primarily by promoting and explaining the advantage of a Lasting Power of Attorney so a nominated individual can assist with finances and welfare and ultimately take control if necessary.

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

Our staff need patience to welcome clients who come to our offices and our solicitors need to be aware of the effect of dementia on a clients ability to give instructions and to get the best out of each meeting.
