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 Network is committed to developing and sharing expertise and good practice when working with older audiences in museums and galleries across the UK.

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

Lack of research based on outcomes following reminiscence work and dementia in museums. Need for clear and agreed methodologies based on evidence.
