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 strive to help all members of the community when they come into the store. We want them to feel comfortable and at ease.

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