Through supporting adults with a learning disability and enabling them to understand what dementia is and to recognise some of the signs and generally raise awareness about dementia

 

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

Making it clear and understandable to people with learning disabilities
