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?

The health of everyone’s feet is very important ,as people become less mobile foot health can become more of an issue.

A person with dementia requires all elements of their health being monitored closely to give them the very best chance of living well .

If we become a dementia friendly service we will be more equipped to offer a quality service to the clients we have now and in the future with dementia.

The fact that we are a mobile service can be extremely helpful for families and individual coping with dementia. 

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

To become dementia friendly we need to source more information about dementia and find out any way we can do more for our clients.
