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?

The Local Authority has a crucial role to play in supporting the delivery of better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers.  There is a Sefton Dementia Strategy which has an overal aim of "We want to ensure that people with dementia and their carers receive high quality, compassionate care whether they are at home, in hospital or in a care home.  We want the person with dementia, and their family and carer, their wellbeing and quality of life to be first and foremost in the minds of those commissioning and providing services for them".  The Council has a leadership role across the whole borough.

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

Reducing resources with increased demand, finding new or different ways of working.
