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?

With the help of our patient group and staff we:

  • create a safer, supportive place to assist people living with dementia;
  • help rehabilitate, and maintain independent living;
  • support vulnerable people, carers, families and support workers by creating a safe place to visit for help and rehabilitation, and to meet others living with dementia or caring for people with dementia.

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

Training of staff and members of the patient group to be confident in meeting and interacting with people living with dementia. Managing staff levels to ensure there are at least two members of staff with these skills\knowledge. Costs related to making the surgery more dementia-friendly.
