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?

Maltby town council recognises that that the number of people with dementia in on the increase and that there is a need to ensure the people in Maltby who live with the condition and their families feel supported and understood.

The council members understand the concept of the Rotherham Dementia Action Alliance(RDDAA) and its aim to create a Dementia Friendly Maltby as one of the Dementia Friendly communities within Rotherham.

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

A challenge will be finding ways to get the relevant people engaged with the project and ensuring that we find ways of making it self-sustaining for years to come once the initial work has been done
