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 already know and are in contact with the elderly who have dementia.

We are friendly and always offer any help when needed, even if its a seat and a chat or helping someone home with their shopping. Both my staff have worked in elderly homes or looking after people in their own homes.

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

I think as we have 3 staff including myself, we are all ok with how we can assist anyone with dementia and also their families; for example if they need groceries delivering, we can do this even if it a small amount of food.
