Hythe and Waterside Dementia Friendly Group

We are a volunteer group committed to developing Hythe and the Waterside area as a Dementia Friendly community.

Local Alliances:
Hampshire Dementia Action Alliance

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 will endeavour to improve awareness and understanding of dementia in our locality. We will also offer information and local support that is available in the community.


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

We will organise sub-groups and coordinate volunteers to deliver this valuable work, also to publicise this work within our area.
