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?

Sainsbury's want to be a part of the local DAA as we are aware that there is an ageing population and dementia is becoming more prevalent.  We want to be able to support our customers, staff and family & friends living with dementia.

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

The team at Sainsbury's will review the action plan  that has been put in place at their monthly 'Great Place to Work' meetings.
