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 equip all our volunteers to work sensitively and appropriately with seniors with dementia who attend the programme of events we run so that each person can benefit fully from all we aim to provide.

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

Keeping our volunteers up to date with the needs and requirements of attendees, being able to adapt to and assess the needs of each individual.
