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?

All the doctors and staff are committed to helping people with Dementia and their carers. We feel there are ways we could improve the delivery of this care to make it easier for patients and carers.

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