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 are looking to increase awareness and understanding of dementia;  to reduce the stigma and increase the diagnosis of dementia.  This will enable early information and treatments, to allow patients to live better with dementia.

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

Dementia is still a stigmatised illness - we must try to reduce this by encouraging patients and families with memory concerns to access their GP for investigations and diagnosis.

2. Actions

  • Displaying information about memory problems

    We will put up 'worried about your memory?' posters on the wall in our waiting room and in local businesses, to encourage people to speak to their GP if they have concerns.

    The Corner sugery held a coffee morning during Dementia Awareness Week. The event was successful and we donated a sum of money to the Society. The staff also baked and sold the items, this sum of money will be put toward further funding of coffee mornings etc.

  • Fun runs and exercise events

    We will stage fun runs and exercise events, to highlight the value of exercise in combating dementia.
