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?

Through staff training and awareness we can understand our customers needs better . Understanding that our customers may need more time and one to one service.

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

Getting all staff trained and made aware as many are only part-time and we are only a small store.
