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 Warwickshire Exercise Referral Scheme will be inclusive of Dementia by May 2013, this will give people the opportunity to continue to be active and give them a greater chance of ensuring a good quality of life for a longer period.

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

It has been difficult to define the different stages of dementia and to draw a point where someone is not appropriate to exercise in a gym facility.  It will be difficult to get this message out to the referring health professionals.
